It was not known at press time if Mays, who plays dozens of characters in the Doug Wright play, would be well enough to return Oct. 14. He was thought to have food poisoning.

The solo play about Charlotte von Mahlsdorf, a German transvestite who survived the Nazis and the communists will ends its Broadway run Oct. 31 and be followed by regional engagements (Goodman Theatre, Geffen Playhouse).

The production began life at Off-Broadway's Playwrights Horizons, before transferring to Broadway. It was developed in regional theatres (About Face Theatre) and in not-for-profit programs (Sundance Theatre Lab). Moises Kaufman directs.
