David Cale is an Obie-winning solo performer, writer and actor who has performed two sold out shows, A Likely Story and Palomino within the Off the Wall series. Cale returns to the Warhol with his new solo show HARRY CLARKE, a sexually charged and hilarious, one-man thriller. HARRY CLARKE is the story of a shy mid-western man who feels more himself when adopting the persona of a cocky Londoner, Harry Clarke. Moving to New York and presenting himself as an Englishman, he charms his way into a wealthy family's life, romancing two family members as the seductive and sexually precocious Harry Clarke, with more on his mind than love. With his spellbinding and emotionally nuanced storytelling, Cale has created a riveting story of a man leading an outrageous double life.
“No matter which figure Cale is inhabiting, there’s a wonderment in his face and voice and an openness to his presence that pull you into his stories, which become richer and more poignant as points of connection reveal themselves.” –WashingtonPost
“Fascinating as he is to watch, and exquisite as his verbal imagery can be, it is Cale’s gifts as a storyteller that hold an audience rapt” – San Francisco Chronicle
