The Michael C. Hall-led production of Will Eno's Thom Pain (based on nothing) celebrated its official opening at the Signature Theatre November 11. The Debate Society's Oliver Butler directs the Off-Broadway revival, currently scheduled to run through December 2.

The monologue play tells the story of a man who is desperately (and comically) trying to save his own life.
