Joe Cino was an Italian-American theatrical producer and café-owner. The beginning of the Off-Off-Broadway theatre movement is generally credited to have begun at Cino’s Caffe Cino. John P. Dodd lit the stage using electricity stolen from the city grid by Joe Cino’s lover, electrician Jon Torrey. In 1967, Jon Torrey was electrocuted and died. Though his death was ruled accidental, skeptical insiders claimed that he committed suicide. Less than 2 months later Cino committed suicide as well.
