The New York Times reports that Fogler will star in Dan O’Brien’s The Voyage of the Carcass. The comedy is set to begin performances at the SoHo Playhouse Oct. 5 with an official opening Oct. 16. Randy Baruh will direct the limited engagement of O’Brien’s work, which will play through Nov. 12.

The Voyage of the Carcass was previously presented at the HERE Arts Center in summer 2002. At that time, the play was said to combine commedia dell'arte and theatre verité and concerned an expedition to the North Pole. The work also features a plot that skips back and forth in time.

Dan Fogler received Tony, Outer Critics Circle, Theatre World and Lortel awards for his performance in The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee. His other theatrical credits include Joe Fearless, Bridges and Harmonies, Bobby Gould in Hell, Scooby Doo/Stage Fright and The Detective Sketches. Fogler took part in a previous production of The Voyage of the Carcass at the Greenwich Street Theatre. Fogler will soon be seen in the feature films “Fanboys” and “School for Scoundrels.”

The SoHo Playhouse is located in Manhattan at Soho 15 Vandam Street between Sixth and Varick. Visit www.sohoplayhouse.com for more information.
