Through gritty storytelling, Dan Ruth shares dark comic monologues, interwoven with characters he’s encountered while working and drinking in the bars and dives of per-gentrified New York City with universal results.

A seedy roller coaster ride of after-hour whiskey shots, horror films and rock and roll, “A Life Behind Bars” shines with an incredible light. From a NYC Health Inspector, to a Brooklyn “new money” hipster, to a Hell’s Kitchen-Andrew Lloyd Webber-loving piano bar denizen, to his own alcoholic celebration and fall, “A Life Behind Bars” shines with an incredible light

Winner of the 2018 NYC Bistro Award for ‘Outstanding Solo Play’ and the 2016 United Solo Festival Winner for ‘Best Autobiographical Show,’ “A Life Behind Bars” an unapologetic, dark and funny look at what can happen when you reach for the stars but grab for the bottle instead.
