A New Greek Comedy Play Opens In New York

A Greek comedy play “Ta Filarakia” (Buddies) starring famous Greek actor Stratos Tzortzoglou promises a lot of passion to New York audiences, opening on April 27.
The makers describe Ta Filarakia as a Bromance, with the motto: “There is no truth without passion, without error… the truth can only be achieved with passion”. “It is a dramatic comedy or a drama written in a funny way,” they claim.
Directed by Lukas Skipitaris and with text adaptation by Giorgos Vouros, the play is about male friendship, loyalty, the difficulties between the sexes, and the everlasting value of friendship and truth.
“What is beautiful and great in this world has never been born of logical discussion,” the comedy underlines.
The play stars Stratos Tzortzoglou, Manos Pantelidis, and Tasos Karydis. The three friends start a fight that almost ends in a psychodrama, raising the big question: Is male friendship innocent and pure, or is it governed by selfishness, eroticism, and power?
“Ta Filarakia” opens on April 27 at the Archdiocesan Hellenic Cultural Center, 27-09 Crescent Street in Astoria. It will run from April 27 through May 27, on Fridays and Saturdays at 8 PM and Sundays at 4 PM, at the Archdiocesan Hellenic Cultural Center, 27-09 Crescent St. in Astoria.
