The Obie Award-winning puppeteer Basil Twist (Symphonie Fantastique ) provides visual effects for the show, the first in six years from the company Theatre Couture. The play is scheduled to close Dec. 30.
Josh Rosenzweig directs the play, about an ostracized high school student with telekinetic powers. Other performers include Kate Goehring, Keri Meoni, Kathy Searle, Rafi Silver, Matt Wilkas, Marnye Young, David Ilku and Danielle Skraastad.
Set design is by Tobin Ost, costumes are by David Moyer and lighting is by Paul Hackenmueller. Original music and sound design is created by Robert Kaplowitz.
Jackson has served as an editor for Show People and Time Out New York magazines, and has written two other plays that have played P.S. 122 — Charlie! and Doll — plus Tell-Tale, which played the Cherry Lane Theatre. He co-wrote the book for Breaking Up Is Hard to Do, a musical featuring the songs of Neil Sedaka.
Tickets, priced $18, are available by calling (212) 352-3101. P.S. 122 is located at 150 First Avenue at Ninth Street.
