Andrew Librizzi

Beyond The Farthest Star's Andrew Librizzi is a talented  playwright, director, and producer who is dedicated to putting out a film of the highest quality. The feedback from those who have been privileged to see an advanced screening of BTFS have given the film very high praise, so I have no doubt that his standards of excellence are worth the wait. The few snippets the rest of us have seen have merely whetted my appetite for more, but I know it will be better to see the film as Andy envisions it. Getting a chance to read the novel (based on the screenplay) written by Bodie and Brock Thoene has helped. Since I have seen few films and books that were identical, reading the book did not spoil the film for me at all. It is going to be amazing to see these characters come to life on screen, and there are some outstanding actors in these roles.

Andy and actor/producer Benjamin Dane discuss BTFS during a T*CHAT:

Andy has also written and directed several corporate projects, plus has several  films and plays to his credit. His first (award winning) film was Holding On  in 1992. In 2009, his short film Still Born had multiple nominations and 2 wins at the 168 Film Project. One of the first  High Definition Television pilots, Texas Tales and Legends , was directed and edited by Andy...and was hosted by none other than Barry Corbin. In 1995, Mr. Librizzi established the Desert Bloom Theatre  in Dallas, and the list of his plays include The Boxer's Garden and Peanut Butter and Tofu on Jewish Rye. Another of his plays, The First Church Of Texaco  had a very successful run in 2013 at the A. D. Players Theater which is located in Houston, TX

 Coming to Select Theaters Oct. 18, 2013

Mr. Librizzi,
I simply want to tell you that I thoroughly enjoyed the dialogue in The First Church of Texaco and am wondering if you have written any books?
