News   Iris Bahr's Solo Show, Dai (enough), Will Return to the New York Stage
Iris Bahr's solo work Dai (enough) is scheduled to return to New York for a limited run at the 47th Street Theatre.

Previews will begin Nov. 12 with an opening scheduled for Nov. 19. The limited engagement will play through March 2, 2008.

Bernie Kukoff, Jonathan Pollard and Jon Cutler produce the new run, which will offer 6:30 PM performances at the 47th Street Theatre, which also houses Forbidden Broadway: Rude Awakening.

Written and performed by Bahr, the solo show, according to press notes, is described as such: "Dai transports us into the fast-paced world of a bustling Tel Aviv café, just moments before a suicide bomber enters. . . . Members of all strata of Israeli society, as well as its observers and critics, are captured in what are to be their final moments."

Creator Bahr was a sergeant in the Israeli army, a neuroscience researcher and a standup comedian and actress. She had a recurring role on HBO's "Curb Your Enthusiasm" and was also seen in "Larry The Cable Guy." She is also the author of "Dork Whore: My Travels Through Asia as a Twenty Year Old Pseudo-Virgin." Will Pomerantz directed the work, which played a sold-out run at the Impact Festival. The production then began a new run Nov. 8, 2006, at the Culture Project's former home (at 45 Bleecker) and reopened at the company's new stage (Jan. 4, 2007) for a two-month stint.

The work also recently played a special command performance (May 31) at the United Nations Headquarters in New York City and (Aug. 1-27) as part of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

Tickets to Dai (enough) at The 47th Street Theatre, 304 West 47th Street, are available by calling (212) 239-6200. For more information, visit
