Vinsantos DeFonte presents a preview of his one-man-ish show Nightingale. Directed by Dennis Monn, this work is inspired by DeFonte's affection and obsession with Tennessee Williams' famed character from the play that he spent nearly forty years writing, Vieux Carre. Part play, part musical, Nightingale tells the tale of a struggling artist with delusions of grandeur, a character study of who they might have been before moving into a French Quarter flophouse. Nightingale ends where William's Vieux Carre begins. The premiere will take place at the Provincetown Tennessee Williams Theater Festival this coming September.
