Review Fix Exclusive: Matt de Rogatis and Chris Loupos Talk ‘Lone Star’

Review Fix chats with Matt de Rogatis and Chris Loupos who discuss their roles in the NINE Theatricals production of Lone Star, detailing how they got involved with the project and several of their techniques and methods on stage that play an influential role in their character’s portrayals.

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.

NINE Theatricals production of Lone Star will be only the second New York City revival of the show since Powers Boothe originated the role of Roy on Broadway in 1979.
