Performances of Bertolt Brecht's farce A Man's A Man began Jan. 10, 2014, at Classic Stage Company, prior to an official opening Jan. 30. 

Directed by Brian Kulick, A Man's A Man stars avant-garde performance artist Justin Vivian Bond as canteen proprietress Leokadia Begbick.

The show is described as follows: "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." Here's a look at the production:
