Listen to a live interview with Tony Fitzpatrick on Vocolo. 89.5 FM

There are bums. There are tramps. There are hobos. And then there’s Tony. Some guys just can’t fit in. Fine artist, poet and storyteller Tony Fitzpatrick delves into the Hobo Alphabet for a musically-entertaining, visually-rich and never dull night of theater. With returning side-kick Stan Klein, mean-guitarist John Rice, powerful vocalist Kat Eggleston. And Buzz Kilman!

Fitzpatrick’s THIS TRAIN was developed with Ann Filmer for 16th Street where all tickets were sold-out before it even opened in its premiere in Berwyn. Now THIS TRAIN returns with some additional material, stunning video art by Kristin Reeves, with vocalist Kat Eggleston (from Victory Gardens Snow Queen) and Buzz Kilman as Hobo Ghost. “Tony Fitzpatrick writes poetry like he does everything else – for keeps.” – Steve Earle

Running time 95 minutes with one intermission.
