Virtuosic writer-performer David Cale will bring his latest work to the Kirk Douglas Theatre. In Palomino, he portrays seven people in a sensuous tale that follows Irishman Kieren McGrath, a beautiful, literate and mysterious Central Park carriage driver. Kieren dreams of writing a book, and when the opportunity to become an escort to rich, lonely women in New York presents itself, he’s found his subject. Or has he?
Cale is best known for his solo works A Likely Story, Deep in a Dream of You, Smooch Music, The Redthroats (which was presented by CTG in the 1988 Taper, Too season), and the Obie Award-winning Lillian. His monologues have been featured on Public Radio’s This American Life and NPR’s The Next Big Thing. As a lyricist, his words have been sung by Elvis Costello, Deborah Harry and the Jazz Passengers. As an actor he performed on Broadway in The Threepenny Opera and most recently starred in the off-Broadway production of Mouth to Mouth at The New Group. He has appeared in films including Two Lovers, Pollock and most notably, playing the homeless drifter Studebaker in The Slaughter Rule, opposite David Morse and Ryan Gosling.
