March 16th, 2011 marks the debut of my new live stage show, The Skinny with Peter DeGiglio at The Tank Theatre in Manhattan. In this highly anticipated new show, yours truly, acclaimed underground performer Peter DeGiglio, presents a humorous look at the events that shape our city, our nation and our world, but does so as an ordinary guy just trying to wrap his head around all of the madness while encouraging a disgruntled public to do the same.
In development for over a year, The Skinny has already created quite a buzz and gained a significant fan base!
The show is directed by Samantha Jones, award winning actress, director, and personal coach whose client list includes D.L. Hughley and Amy Stiller. Ms. Jones recently directed the one woman show, Penny Pollak’s No Traveler, which won critical acclaim at the 2010 Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Ms. Jones represented Screen Actors Guild on the board of The Professional Women in Arts and Media and us a union activist for Actor's Equity Association. She is a founding partner of Dora Mae Productions
In the tradition of hosts like Jon Stewart, The Skinny will combine my comedy performance with a discussion among a surprise guest panelists consisting of popular cult, pop and political figures! (I've already booked two very exciting people for the debut!)
With your donation, I can catapult the launch of this project to a higher level! The funds I collect here will not only allow me to begin providing my show with the advertising it deserves (posters, post cards, buttons, media listings, etc.) but I will also be able to compensate my high profile guest panelists! Moreover, you will be helping me provide technical and logistic products and services necessary for a theater production of this magnitude.
