The Aching Dogs Theatre Company, the New York Hotel Trades Council's theatre group, is back for another must-see performance!

New York Nuts 4 is a series of seven short comedic plays written by a myriad of established playwrights, including the unrivaled Frederick Stroppel.

The Aching Dogs Theatre Company was created to support and encourage the growing number of union members who, in addition to working in hotels, clubs, and restaurants throughout the city, also have a love of acting, writing, directing, and/or working behind the scenes in theatre. The Aching Dogs is an outlet for members of all ages and backgrounds to pursue their passions in the performing arts

This show, an AEA approved showcase sponsored by the New York Hotel Trades Council, AFL-CIO, features a diverse cast of at least twenty actors and actresses from both the Aching Dogs Theatre Company and the Actor's Studio. Those New York Hotel Trades Council members whose talents will be featured in the May performance include Shelly Embers (Four Seasons), Valerie Brown (Tavern on the Green), Mike Rutkoski (Sheraton Manhattan), Nina Rochelle (Helmsley Park Lane), and Mike O'Sullivan (Sheraton Manhattan).
