Robert Christophe's new one-man show the comedy, Michigan Impossible, will end its limited engagement at the John Houseman on Aug. 18, almost a month earlier than originally scheduled. The show opened June 21 and, by the time it closes, Michigan Impossible will have played nine previews and 51 performances. Directed and co-developed by Christophe's wife, Kim Waldauer, Michigan Impossible examines a multi-cultural young man, Jesse Boles, and his search for racial identity. Part Irish, part Native American and part African-American, Boles considers himself unable to determine which is the "correct box to check." The one-man show, produced by Red Road Productions, was received well in Philadelphia.
Tickets are $35. The John Houseman is located at 450 W. 42 St. For tickets call TicketCentral at (212) 279 4200 or visit michiganimpossible.com.
