Every time people fall in love, they're positive it's the right one, right? Michael MacCauley, writer-performer of Sure of This One, has found true love more times than he can count. Yet, recount them he does in his one-man show, running March 10-April 8 at the Tribeca Playhouse.
Quoting William Shakepeare's famous Macbeth speech, "It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing," MacCauley promises lots of "sound and fury" with the idiot part left to opinion. After being robbed by three masked gunmen at a Mexican restaurant in Little Italy, MacCauley whips through a tour of Ireland, Notre Dame football, Shakespeare through the aid of illegal substances, and "Emotional Jeopardy." Through it all, he yearns for the "ultimate destination" -- true love.
Charles Gales directs and produces. Gale last directed the New York premiere of Quentin Tarantino's Reservoir Dogs.
Tickets are $28. Tribeca Playhouse is located 111 Reade Street. For reservations, call (212) 532-8887. Sure of This One is on the web at http://www.sureofthisone.com.
