A wickedly funny, dark comic work of monologues and stories fermented in over two decades of booze, bars and gentrification. Based on Dan Ruth’s 20-plus years as a New York City actor-turned-bartender in Hell’s Kitchen, Brooklyn and beyond, A Life Behind Bars sheds comedic light on the darker side of the world of the bar, club and restaurant industry. Here, a rapidly changing New York gives way to Yelp, rigged health inspections and a place where selfie sticks, man-buns and periwinkle hair threaten to bulldoze any remnant of New York’s sleaze, authenticity and humanity. A Life Behind Bars is a dark, voyeuristic comedy spiral, full of truths and themes of loneliness, vampirism and self-enslavement. An exorcism of sorts, A Life Behind Bars is an unapologetic look at what can happen when you reach for the stars but grab the bottle instead.
