The production of Irish playwright Conor McPherson's St. Nicholas that opened on St. Patrick's Day, March 17 at Dallas' Undermain Theatre ends its extended run April 14. The one-man drama began performances March 14 for a run originally scheduled to close April 7.
McPherson's St. Nicholas is the tale of a cantankerous middle-aged theatre critic whose attraction to a beautiful and strange actress seduces him into the world of vampires. Soon enough, he finds himself living with a coven of the creatures, acting as a sort of pimp for their bloody needs, while finding himself addicted to the self confidence they've given him.
Bruce DuBose stars. DuBose took the title role in Undermain's Macbeth and has performed with the Dallas Theatre Center and the Dallas Shakespeare Festival.
Theatre Quorum artistic director Carl Savering directs. Recent credits include Serenading Louie and Jeffrey Hatcher's adaptation of Turn of the Screw.
Tickets to St. Nicholas are $10-$15. The Undermain Theatre is located at 3200 Main Street in Dallas, TX. For reservations, call (214) 747-5515. The Undermain Theatre website is located at http://www.undermain.com. — by Ernio Hernandez
