Keith Phares Stars in New Monodrama ‘Inbox Zero’

By Afton Wooten

Baritone Keith Phares stars in the new operatic monodrama “Inbox Zero.”

Presented by UrbanArias, “Inbox Zero” follows Jackie, a man who falls for an internet get-rich-quick scheme as he tries to provide for his family. Phares is joined by the Inscape Orchestra conducted by UrbanArias Artistic Director Robert Wood. Dennis Whitehead Darling directs.

“Inbox Zero” is the most recent UrbanArias commission from Peter Hilliard and Matt Boresi. Other commissions from the duo include “Blue Viola” (also featuring Phares) and “The Last American Hammer.”

This presentation is a staged workshop reading, not a full production. A talkback with the crew will follow the performance.

The workshop performance will take place on May 4 at 8 pm at the Keegan Theatre in Washington, D.C.
