A comedic tearjerker about the best grandmother. Ever.

Only THREE more shots to see this show in Providence!

“Lepore’s new one-man show, Firecracker Bye Bye, is a tender and funny ode to his late grandmother Nonie. He’s a gifted performer with a rubber face; he can lucidly switch characters just by cocking his head and changing his expression… and this heartfelt show is just about impossible not to enjoy. Bring your grandmother—whether she’s alive, or simply alive in your memory.” -Twin Cities Daily Planet

Tickets: http://firecrackerbyebye.brownpapertickets.com/

An embarrassing exposé, twisted tribute and lamenting love letter to yarn, lasagna and sweet misunderstandings.

Friday October 11th at 8:00 PM, Saturday October 12th at 8:00 PM, Sunday October 13th at 2:00 PM

Tickets: http://firecrackerbyebye.brownpapertickets.com/

Meet the Lepore family: Frank the debonaire dad, Cameille the kooky aunt, and Nonie the sassy and endearing matriarch who holds the family together.

Seth Lepore, who is known for his dynamic character acting and vocal elasticity, plays his most intimate cast of characters yet. Lepore uses a chameleon-like ability to shape shift between his family members with the animated subtlety that has become his trademark.

Lepore playfully prods the Italian-American obsessions of food, home made sweaters and unfiltered discourses that border on the absurd. Through a vulnerable wit, Lepore shows how his grandmother became a second parent to him, leading to some of the most ludicrous and heartfelt moments of his life.

Tickets: http://firecrackerbyebye.brownpapertickets.com/

At once an embarrassing expose, twisted tribute and lamenting love letter, Firecracker Bye Bye is a comedic celebration of life amongst the inevitably of loss. From lasagna experiments gone wrong to crocheted eyesores, Lepore embodies his family’s offbeat charm with grace and punch, leaving the audience both jealous and relieved that they aren’t his relatives.

I've reached that point where two weeks into the busiest two months of my life I have reached a strange calm amongst swirling chaos around me.

I want to thank music for assisting me. As each feeling, mood and temperament shifts continuously I can find the right soundtrack to keep me on target or give me the space to close my eyes and briefly be absorbed in aural bliss.

Music has always been more than background for me. It's always the front and center foundation of keeping me grounded.

Story
Tagline
Walking the fine line of earnest sincerity and mischievous irony.
Introduction
I grew up in the Ocean State, spent a good time landlocked, made it to the other ocean, decided to come back to the Northeast.

During all this I've had a number of ridiculous jobs, dove into weird spiritual practices and came out the other side as a happy agnostic.

Currently I travel a trilogy of one-man shows on the underbelly of the self help movement. Losing My Religion: Confessions of a New Age Refugee won an Encore Award at the Boulder and Minnesota Fringe Festivals. 

SuperHappyMelancholyexpialidocious is a stranger-than-fiction satire about the war on thought. The happiness industry is turned on its head to expose the farcical ideology of the positive thinking movement.
