In a production sure to charm members of the GOP, Washington DC's Church Street Theatre will bring back Fixin' to Die: A Visit to the Mind of Lee Atwater, Robert Myers' hard-hitting one-man portrait of the architect of the 1980s Republican revolution, who later died of brain cancer.

Bruce McIntosh stars as Atwater for the Sept. 12-Oct. 20 run, at the height of the presidential race in this consummately political town.

As in the SRO 1995 engagement, Fixin' will be directed by George Furth, better known as a librettist (Company) and playwright (Twigs Getting Away With Murder).

The play was hailed in its 1992 premiere at Tamarind Theatre in Los Angeles, but was banned when a production was attempted at the University of South Carolina in Atwater's home state. It later was produced in Charleston, SC.

Tickets cost $10 for previews Sept. 12-14; $15-20 for the regular run. For information: (202) 265-3748 or (800) 494-8497. -- By Robert Viagas
