BACK AGAIN: ON THE BLOCK is a musical revue that goes inside the minds of the wild and wacky denizens of one block in the East Village. These authentic characters, drawn on the actual residents of the East Village are from a bit ago when gentrification was just past the crawling stages, and the Mars Bar was still serving up hooch with fruit fly ice cubes. Ah, the good old days, when personalities too grand for the sidewalks walked these streets. During the course of seventy minutes we meet: The Dogs, offering their opinion that "the block is going to the humans"; The Last Little Girl on the Block, with the homicidal Barbie Doll; The Junkie who bemoans that "it's tough to be a junkie: you've gotta give up a lot;" The Block Vigilante who maintains in "Right is Right and Wrong is Wrong" that "There's only one way to look at things and we will be the champs to put the fairies in the camps; in "Solo in the City" two lonely people, wonder if they should leave the safety of their solitary existences to take another shot at a relationship; The Homeless describe how life is "Living in a Cardboard Box;" and additional new material. The eclectic musical styles of ON THE BLOCK include English music hall patter songs, military marches, blues, rock and pop, sometimes all at the same time, all with a liberal dash of Spike Jones insanity. BACK AGAIN: ON THE BLOCK is written by Don Arrington; performed by the composer and Camille Tibaldeo, with musical accompaniment by Dionne McClain-Freeney and direction by Barbara Maier Gustern Don Arrington: (Male Characters) has been a fixture of Downtown theater since the seventies, working as an actor and singer with Will Leach and John Braswell's ETC Company of LaMaMa and with John Vaccaro in the Playhouse of the Ridiculous at La MaMa and at Theater for the New City. He has performed at numerous regional theatres and at The Delacorte Theater with The New York Shakespeare F
