From Aug. 30 through Sept. 6 Doug Wright's Pulitzer Prize-winning drama will be on hiatus. The week-long break will accommodate a vacation for Wife's Tony-winning star, Jefferson Mays. Mays does not have an understudy in the production, which plays the Lyceum Theatre.
I Am My Own Wife will resume performances Tuesday, Sept. 7 at 8 PM.
I Am My Own Wife is Doug Wright's autobiographical drama about the playwright's search for the truth behind the life of German transvestite and Nazi- and Communist-era survivor Charlotte von Mahlsdorf. It began life at Off-Broadway's Playwrights Horizons, before transferring to Broadway. The one-person show, which features many characters, including Wright himself, is performed by Mays and directed by Moises Kaufman.
The Lyceum Theatre is located at 149 West 45th Street. For more information visit www.iammyownwife.com.
