Playwright/Mobile Street Photographer Sean Pomposello (AKA One Big Shoe) captures candid glimpses of New Yorkers he encounters on the street in public places, armed with only his trusty iphone. It is his own rather elaborate character development tool, used as stimulus for his plays.
Both The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences Nicholl Fellowship and Monterey County Film Commission have recognized his screen work. His full-length plays include House Red, Bitch, Turnpike South, Barbicide and The Woodpusher. Many theaters and festivals around the country have staged his plays, including Theater for the New City, Naked Angels, The Impact Theater, The Strand Theatre, Manhattan Repertory Theatre and The Riant Theatre's Strawberry One Act Festival. The Theatre Project hosted a series of his work titled Universal Monsters in November and December of ’11. His play, Bitch, ran at The Players Theatre in January of 2012 and his most current full length, titled "Barbicide," will stage on October 4th at The Players Theatre as well.
Sean Pomposello was born in the Bronx, and has spent the majority of his life in and around the New York, Metropolitan area.
