A Life Behind Bars

"A Life Behind Bars" is a hilarious & seedy tour-de-force roller coaster ride of after-hour whiskey shots, horror films and rock & roll. Dan Ruth shares dark comic monologues, interwoven with characters he's encountered while working & drinking in the bars & dives of per-gentrified NYC with universal results. From a NYC Health Inspector, to a Brooklyn "new money" hipster, to a Hell's Kitchen and Andrew Lloyd Webber-loving, piano-bar denizen, to his own alcoholic celebration and fall, "A Life Behind Bars" shines an incredible light on over two decades of NYC bartending with an incredible message of survival.
