Announcement of a Theatrical Nature

It's me! Playing Hamlet! But with 97% less Shakespeare!

Exciting news for those who live in New York and have sworn a blood oath against me! I will be descending from my mountaintop fortress an unprecedented eight times over the next couple of weeks. In fact, I will be out in the open, without bodyguards, without even so much as a Kevlar vest. You may never have a better chance to strike. And the reason for my carelessness? Living, breathing art — the kind where you pretend to be another person entirely.

This Wednesday night, Point of You Productions presents the return of "A Midwinter's Tale," based on the 1995 screenplay by Kenneth Branagh. We were proud to present the world premiere of the stage adaptation in 2004, and have brought back the production as part of Point of You's 10th anniversary celebration. "A Midwinter's Tale" is the story of a desperate man (me) going to desperate measures (trying to direct "Hamlet") during desperate times (specifically, the week before Christmas). Not to give anything away, but the thing that ensues is hilarity.

When: March 3-13, Wednesday through Saturday @ 8:00PM Where: The American Theatre of Actors, 314 West 54th Street, 8th Floor Why: Bear in mind what I said about hilarity ensuing. Tickets: $18 Reservations: Tickets can be purchased in advance through TheaterMania.
