HISTORY OF SHOW
BLOOD TYPE: RAGU
Actor/Playwright Frank Ingrasciotta gives a tour de force one-man performance in this funny & tender coming-of-age story exploring the first-generation American's delicate dance between culture and identity! Come meet the more than 20 characters who live, love and laugh as they struggle to thrive in a new culture. It's a fast-paced journey that is not just a comedy, not just a drama. It's family - and we all have one!
Blood Type: RAGU's universal themes entertained audiences during its critically-acclaimed off-Broadway run last year at the historic Actors Playhouse.
