The cat’s out of the bag! This September, THE DEUCE adds salt to the end-of-Summer wound with Sam Peckinpah’s searingly pessimistic 1974 epic of down-Mexico-way madness: BRING ME THE HEAD OF ALFREDO GARCIA! Still playing at the Times Square Theatre circa 1980!
Plus: Prizes and surprises, Bronx Brewery Pale Ale at the after-party, and music by DJ BONES! Hosted and presented by THE DEUCE JOCKEYS: Jeff, Andy, and Joe!
Warren Oates’ acme acting achievement as ex-pat bar rat, Bennie, in his one last go-for-broke grab at the Golden Goose: by nabbing the much sought-after and fought-over million dollar worth titular prize! Both a road trip to redemption and a Shakespearean dead-end spiral to damnation – boozy, bleary-eyed, beautiful and morally blurry… with bikers, banditos, bad attitude G-Men…and more fun than a barrelfull of bullets! Dirty, dusty and lusty, a ballad of desperation and the depraved depths to which man will sink just to get ahead… or Aaaaaa head! Tienes muchas moscas!
Part of Nitehawk’s THE DEUCE Signature Series.
