A brand new season begins for L.A.’s multi-award winning Pacific Resident Theatre as they present the world premiere staging of “Andy Warhol’s Tomato,” by Vince Melocchi.
It’s 1946 in Pittsburgh. An 18-year-old Andy Warhol finds himself in the basement of a working class bar. Over the course of a summer, Andy gives and gets inspiration, guidance, and friendship from a surprising source.
Pittsburgh folklore has it that there is a working class bar which has the reputation for being the place where a teenage Andy Warhol drew on napkins in exchange for Coca-Cola. While drinking at that same bar, playwright, Vince Melocchi, began to see it in a different way… as a creative, mysterious place. He noted, “Andy allowed us to see, think, and feel about art in a completely new way. I wanted to find out who and what were his real influences. Andy Warhol’s Tomatoimagines a chance encounter between Warhol and a Pittsburgh bar owner, as a step on his extraordinary journey.”
Directed by Dana Jackson, the cast includes Derek Chariton (as Andy Warhol) and Keith Stevenson (as Bones).
