Botallack O'Clock (Off-Broadway at 59E59 Theater C). Botallack O'Clock, part of the Brits Off-Broadway Festival, features Dan Frost and Rhys King. Here's how it's billed: "For the last two years of his life, Roger Hilton took permanently to his bed, where he continued to work, painting over the side of his bed on sheets of paper laid on the floor. A small downstairs room in his cottage became his bedroom, living space and studio, where Hilton would work through the night with only his thoughts, his imaginings and a temperamental radio for company."

Old Hats (Off-Broadway at the Pershing Square Signature Center). Off-Broadway's Signature Theatre Company's world premiere of Old Hats, the praised new clowning revue-with-music by Bill Irwin and David Shiner — who also perform the piece — is directed by Tina Landau. According to Signature, "2003-04 Playwright-in-Residence Bill Irwin reunites with fellow clown David Shiner for a new work combining their inimitable magic, slapstick, and hilarity. Using music, technology, and movement, plus other tricks up their sleeves, Irwin and Shiner create another wild and remarkable outing of theatre for a new generation of audiences. Signature is proud to present this dynamic duo's first collaboration since the smash Broadway hit Fool Moon." Visit SignatureTheatre.org.
