Review Fix chats with actor Matt de Rogatis who discusses his role as Roy in the Nine Theatricals production of “Lone Star,” which was recently extended to the Off-Broadway Triad Theater for selected dates through August 29. Detailing his creative process for the role and goals for the show, as well as what the new theater means for the production, the eclectic and talented de Rogatis lets us know exactly why this is a special piece of theatre.
About The Production:
Lone Star takes place in the cluttered backyard of a small-town Texas bar in 1972. Roy, a brawny, macho type who had once been a local high-school hero, is back in town after a hitch in Vietnam and realizes that about all he has left are memories of his glory days, his adoring younger brother Ray, his wife Elizabeth, and his now-crumbling 1959 pink Thunderbird.
Joined by Ray, Roy sets about consuming a case of Lone Star beer while regaling his brother with tales of his military and amorous exploits.
But with the arrival of Cletis, the fatuous, newlywed son of the local hardware store owner, the underpinnings of Roy’s world gradually begin to collapse.
