Derek DelGaudio’s mystifying one-person show In & Of Itself, currently playing Off-Broadway at the Daryl Roth Theatre in Union Square, has announced a second extension. The acclaimed production will now play through December 30, effectively quadrupling its original ten-week run.
The New York premiere of In & Of Itself is produced by Tony winner Neil Patrick Harris, Werner Entertainment, Gary Goddard Entertainment, and Prediction Productions.
In & Of Itself arrived Off-Broadway earlier this spring following a sold-out, five-time extended engagement at Geffen Playhouse in Los Angeles. The show, which explores identity and illusion, is created and performed by magician and performance artist DelGaudio with direction by Emmy winner Frank Oz (Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Little Shop of Horrors).
Performances began in New York April 5 ahead of an April 12 opening. The production was originally scheduled for a ten-week run through June 18.
Producers bill the mysterious new show as a modern allegory—“In & Of Itself explores new ways of seeing the unseeable,” read production notes, “as memories from yesterday, inexplicable events witnessed today and secrets imagined for tomorrow are blended together, creating a perpetual paradox of a show.”
Glenn Kaino serves as artistic producer of the production, which also features original music by Devo frontman Mark Mothersbaugh and production design by A.BANDIT.
