Werner Entertainment, Gary Goddard Entertainment, Prediction Productions, and Tony winner Neil Patrick Harris have announced the New York premiere of In & Of Itself, created and performed by magician and performance artist Derek DelGaudio with direction by Emmy winner Frank Oz (Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Little Shop of Horrors). The one-person show, which explores identity and illusion, will arrive Off-Broadway in the spring following its sold-out, five-time extended engagement at Geffen Playhouse in Los Angeles.
In & Of Itself will play a 10-week engagement beginning April 5, with an opening night set for April 12 at the Daryl Roth Theatre in Union Square.
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.
