PRACTICES AND THEORIES ON WRITING POETRY | EVELYN COLE

Poetry and mathematics have much in common. They both traverse the abstraction ladder, up and down.  Picture a long ladder leaning against a house, prongs dug into the lawn, top rung on the roof. Call it the abstraction ladder that pets and mathematicians scamper on...

About the Author

It was in 1964, John Strangi, age eleven was to visit New York City for the first time. His Father, Albert, would treat him to an entire week in the Big Apple, taking him to the New York Worlds Fair. He was to fall in love with the City instantly and swore to himself that he would one day make New York City his home. Its magic energy would totally captive him.

The first Broadway show he would see would be in 1967 when he and his brother Albert were in NYC for a few days. They would see Hello Dolly starring Betty Grable. The evening was magical! The magic he felt in NYC three years earlier is as stronger as ever.

 

John Strangi with Julie imageHis love for the theater came alive in high school. The smell of grease paint would capture him, landing him roles in The King and I, Wait Until Dark, Plaza Suite, and My Fair Lady. Starring as Henry Higgins in My Fair Lady was a dream come true.

In New York City, he will study acting at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts, the HB Studio in Greenwich Village, and from Emma Walton and Stephen Hamilton at the Bay Street Theater in Sag Harbor.

His dream of making it on Broadway was not to be, but he did work quite a bit in television and movies making him a lifelong member of SAG/AFTRA.

Simply living day to day in New York City, made John feel like a star.
