Ben Rimalower will return to The Duplex (61 Christopher St. at Seventh Avenue) with a double bill of his acclaimed solo plays, Patti Issues (about his obsession with two-time Tony winner Patti LuPone, back on Broadway in the new musical War Paint, and his relationship with his troubled gay father) and Bad with Money (about how an addiction to spending beyond his means has driven him to extreme lengths all his life).
The two shows will play Mondays April 24, May 15, and June 12—Patti Issues at 7 PM, Bad with Money at 9 PM. Tickets to each are $25 (with $37.50 double-bill tickets available) and can be purchased at BenRimalower.com. There is a two-drink minimum per person. Attendees must be at least 21 years old.
