Golden Boy

by Clifford Odets Golden Boy.jpg

Directed by ICTC Producing Director Fortunato Pezzimenti


In this brilliant and timeless American classic, scrappy young Joe Bonaparte is torn between the desire for the modest and satisfying life of an artist and the pressure to pursue fame and fortune as a prizefighter.  Joe's loving Old World Italian father fears that the siren song of fast money, fast cars and faster women will destroy his son's sensitive soul, leaving him nothing.  Odets' powerful language with its jazzy musicality and gritty vernacular heightens Joe's gut-wrenching struggle to choose between the exquisite quivering notes of the violin and "the sweet science," the brutal world of boxing.

Starring Anthony Alcocer, Cassie Cameron, Rolando Martín Gómez, David Autovino, Arin Lee Dandes and others.
