Directed by Brian Kulick, A Man's A Man stars avant-garde performance artist Justin Vivian Bond (Kiki and Herb Alive On Broadway, Jukebox Jackie: Snatches of Jackie Curtis) as canteen proprietress Leokadia Begbick (a role originated by Brecht's wife Helene Weigel).
The production will continue through Feb. 16.
The production also features Jason Babinsky (The Caucasian Chalk Circle, Ghost) as Polly Baker, Andrew Weems (Born Yesterday, Inherit the Wind) as Jeraiah Jip, Gibson Frazier (Mr. Burns, The Internationalist) as Galy Gay, Martin Moran (The Cradle Will Rock, Three Kinds of Exile) as Uriah Shelley, Steven Skybell (Pal Joey, Wicked) as Jesse Mahoney, Tony winner Stephen Spinella (Angels in America, A View from the Bridge) as Bloody Five, Ching Valdes-Aran (The Wild Party, Macbeth) as Mr. Wang and Allan K. Washington in the Ensemble.
Here's how the show is described: "In this early knockabout, anti-just-about-everything farce by Brecht, innocent dockworker Galy Gay in British Colonial India is rather unorthodoxly enlisted into Her Majesty’s Armed Forces, where he is 'dismantled like a car' and then reassembled into the ultimate fighting machine."
