John Simpkins again directs the production that shuttered prematurely last winter when the Zipper Factory closed its doors. Things to Ruin will run through May 18. The Second Stage engagement reunites original cast members Nick Blaemire (Glory Days), Katrina Rose Dideriksen (Addams Family), Badia Farha (Paper Mill's Little Shop of Horrors), Sarah Glendening (Mask), Ian Kagey, Lance Rubin (The Plant That Ate Dirty Socks), Brent Stranathan, Mike Pettry, Eric William Morris (Coram Boy) and Jason "SweetTooth" Williams.

Iconis, who has penned The Black Suits, ReWrite and The Plant That Ate Dirty Socks, created the concert which, press notes state, explores "human beings who are messy, emotional, drugged up, knocked down, inspired, electric and who don't have nearly enough time to cause the kind of commotion they so desperately need to."

Things To Ruin has musical supervision by Matt Hinkley, choreography by Jennifer Werner, set design by Michael Schweikardt, lighting design by Chris Dallos, costume supervision by Michelle Eden Humphrey and sound by Craig Kaufman.

Show times are May 4 at 8 PM; May 8 at 10 PM; May 10 at 7 PM; May 17 at 7 PM; and May 18 at 8 PM.

For tickets phone (212) 246-4422 or visit 2ST. Second Stage is located at 307 West 43rd Street.
