Previews of Bertolt Brecht's farce begin Jan. 10, prior to an official opening Jan. 30. A Man's A Man continues through Feb. 16.
The production, which will be directed by Brian Kulick, will star 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).
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."
A Man's A Man will boast a new score and songs by Tony Award-winning composer Duncan Sheik (Spring Awakening, The Caucasian Chalk Circle). The creative team includes scenic design by Paul Steinberg, costume design by Gabriel Berry, lighting design by Justin Townsend and sound design by Matt Kraus.
