Go Back to Where You Are, With David Greenspan and Stephen Bogardus, at Playwrights Horizons
Here's the play in a nutshell, according to Playwrights Horizons: "A forgotten chorus boy (Greenspan) from the theatre of Ancient Greece, stuck in a lonely purgatory these past 2,000 years, is sent back to Earth on a mission from God. He now finds himself among a vacationing family in Montauk, caught off-guard by his re-discovered ability to feel love. Go Back to Where You Are is a melancholy comic romance, told with Greenspan's unique brand of theatrical wit and exquisite lyricism."
