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 Stash: aka Stan Klein, mean-guitarist John Rice, and new guest vocalist Kat Eggleston.

Fitzpatrick’s This Train was developed with Ann Filmer for 16th Street Theatre, where all tickets were sold-out before it even opened in its premiere in Berwyn. Now This Train returns with some additional material, an intermission (so Tony may take a smoke break), and with Kat Eggleston coming in from Seattle.

"...Wholly captivating self-penned show, This Train - smart, funny, passionate!" - Hedy Weiss, Chicago Sun-Times
