Ron Delsener and Marvin Worth Productions present the work which has first played in Los Angeles. The new run in New York begins Jan. 30, 2006 and opens Feb. 1 at Zipper Theatre for a four-week engagement through Feb. 25. Tickets go on sale Dec. 16 at 9 AM. Jason Fisher stars as the title performer in the show crafted "verbatim from the controversial satirist's most unforgettable routines," written and directed by Joan Worth and Alan Sacks. Producer Marvin Worth presented the Broadway run of Lenny — also about the comic — in 1971 and the 1974 Bob Fosse film.

Lenny Bruce... recreates such bits as "Religions, Inc.," "Christ and Moses," "Hitler and MCA," "How the Law Got Started (Eat, Sleep & Crap)" and other material from Bruce's repertoire from the 1950's and 60's.

The work currently plays a recently-extended Los Angeles stint at the Un-Cabaret's M Bar (Saturdays) through Jan. 14, 2006 before heading to New York's Zipper. The show will perform a 7-show schedule Off-Broadway.

Tickets to Lenny Bruce...In His Own Words at the Zipper Theatre, 336 W. 37 St., go on sale Dec. 16 through (212) 239-6200 or at the box office starting Jan. 23.
