Circumcise Me to End Off-Broadway Run

News   Circumcise Me to End Off-Broadway Run
 
Off-Broadway's Circumcise Me, the comedy written by and starring comedian Yisrael Campbell, will play its final performance June 27 at 7 PM at the Bleecker Street Theater.

The production, which was extended three times, will have played 12 previews and 137 regular performances.

"I am very grateful that the New York theater community has embraced Circumcise Me,” stated Campbell. "This show has exceeded my wildest expectations and I feel honored to have worked with such an amazing creative team and the wonderful people at the Bleecker Street Theater."

Sam Gold directs the production, which is described as such: "Circumcise Me tells the true story of Yisrael Campbell, your average Irish, Italian, Catholic kid from Philly, who became a sober alcoholic, recovering drug addict, husband, father, reform, conservative, unorthodox, orthodox, Jewish comic actor. In his New York theatrical debut, Yisrael (born Christopher) takes the audience on an extraordinary spiritual, creative, and hysterically funny journey including, ouch, three circumcisions along the way."

The creative team includes scenic and video designer Aaron Rhyne and lighting and sound designer Perchik Kreiman-Miller.

Bleecker Street Theater is located at 45 Bleecker Street, just east of Lafayette Street. Tickets for Circumcise Me are available by visiting Telecharge at www.telecharge.com or by calling (212) 239-6200.
