Promo Blue Note Run

Directed by Dana Friedman

“One dime in 1933, California, could buy you a loaf of bread and a cup
of coffee. It could also buy one dance at the taxi-dance hall with a
woman named Cassandra. Filipino immigrant farmer, Aurelio Roxas, will
soon discover a dime is much more costly than he imagined.”

Location:

Dramatists Guild - Frederick Loewe Room
(across the hall from Dramatists Guild Offices)
1501 Broadway, 7th Floor
New York, NY 10036 (between 43rd and 44th streets)

Please note: I.D. is checked upon entering the building,
