Woodruff directs the production, which stars Obie-winning actor Camp as the anti-hero at the center of the story. Notes began performances March 20 and runs through April 11. Joining Camp are Notes from Underground sound designer-composer Michaël Attias as Apollon and Merritt Janson as Liza. Both Attias and Janson perform original compositions during the production.

"'I am a sick man...I am a wicked man,' cries the Underground Man, one of modern literature's first, and most remarkable, antiheros. A former government official who has defiantly withdrawn from a corrupt society, the Underground Man wages his own personal war on everything-and everyone-around him. Laugh-out-loud funny and terrifying, Notes from Underground is the passionate, obsessive, and contradictory confession of a tormented soul," press notes state.

Designing the work are David Zinn (scenic design), Moria Sine Clinton (costume design) and Mark Barton (lighting design).

Tickets are available by visiting www.yalerep.org, by calling (203) 432-1234 or by visiting the Yale Rep box office (1120 Chapel Street).
