Ted Greenberg, the Emmy-winning Letterman writer whose long-running solo show The Complete Performer has been a staple at the Soho Playhouse for the past eight years, will debut his latest comedy show Off-Broadway this October at The Marjorie S. Deane Theater.
Greenberg writes and stars in Ace, which draws on his own experiences as a New York City taxi driver in the 1980s. The new solo play will begin performances October 1 ahead of an October 10 opening night.
Elizabeth Margid directs Greenberg’s five-week engagement through November 5.
In Ace, Greenberg takes audiences back to December 18, 1987, “the nine-year anniversary of Ted Greenberg's long overdue college paper on Edmund Spenser's The Fairie Queene. On that snowy Friday, Ted drives a New York City cab while his father Ace Greenberg runs Wall Street. Ted has one screaming deadline in front of him: turn the paper in by midnight or lose his chance to graduate from Harvard. Forever. It will take a wild ride through the Big Apple, his past and with a white collar felon before he’s able to come to grips with whether to be a dropout or not to be a dropout.”
The creative team includes Guy de Lancey (set/lights), Becky Bodurtha (costumes), Luqman Brown (sound), Jolene Noelle (associate director), Mary Hodges (movement), Francesco Giocamarra (assistant sound) and Fatimah Amill (production stage manager). The production's creative producer is Lanie Zipoy.
