In The House of Leaves, "Ben Stiller is Artie Shaughnessy, a zookeeper and wannabe songwriter, who is trying to cope with a schizophrenic wife (Falco), an impatient girlfriend (Leigh) and a visit from the Pope, all while sustaining his dream of hitting it big. [The play] is a satirical take on celebrity, religion, and the frequent merging of the two."

The production team includes Scott Pask (scenic design), Jane Greenwood (costume design), Brian MacDevitt (lighting design), Fitz Patton (sound design) and Tom Watson (hair design).

Tickets, priced $57-$132, with premium seats available for $137-$227, are on sale by visiting Telecharge.com.
