Performances of the transfer engagement began Nov. 1, following its initial run at Atlantic Theatre Company's Atlantic Stage 2 in late summer (to Oct. 5). The new comedy, written and performed by Pittu (Is He Dead?, LoveMusik), co-starring Peter Bartlett (The New Century), is co-directed by Pittu and Atlantic artistic director Neil Pepe (Speed-the-Plow) with original music by Randy Redd and lyrics by Pittu. The cast also features Chandra Lee Schwartz, Max Kumangai and Matt Schock.

What's That Smell is produced by Daryl Roth and Atlantic Theater Company.

The comedy charts the personal and professional life story of a no-talent musical comedy writer who is on the brink of fame — or perhaps infamy. Pittu is Sterling, and Bartlett is the cloying, fawning talk-show host who interviews him.

Tickets are $55 and $65, and are available by calling Telecharge at (212) 239-6200, online at www.telecharge.com, or in person at the box office.
