The Bat Theatre Co. will present a limited return engagement of their 1999 Obie Award winning Benten Kozo at their home space in New York City's The Flea Theatre, June 25-Aug. 8. Benten is based on an 1862 Kabuki play written by Kawatake Mokuami and is adapted and directed by previous OBIE-winner, Jim Simpson. Simpson received his second OBIE award for his direction of the piece, which mixes the genre of Kabuki with the stylings of musicals, rap, rock and roll, anime, and gangster violence.

The production features The Bat Theatre Company's resident actors, "The Furballs," in the cast, with performers rotating roles each performance.

Benten Kozo runs June 25 - Aug. 8, with tickets priced at $35. For more information, call (212) 226-0051.
