Though an extension through April 17 had been announced, Premium Bob ended its run of Manhunt at Off-Broadway's Kaufman Theatre April 2. A spokesperson said a booking conflict at the theatre led to the rescinding of the extension. Initially, the show was supposed to run only for 16 performances (March 10-28. The show officially opened March 22.
On their latest journey through the land of American pop culture, two Bobs -- David Latham and Paul Boocock -- once again pursued the ever-slippery changeling Dobie McDobie, and encountered a bizarre array of characters, from bad poets and spit-juggling Ukrainians to Aspen ski junkies and absent-minded fathers who accidentally crucify their kids on backyard swing sets. For the grand finale, Premium Bob boasted that they unmasked "one of America's most beloved sports figures."
Manhunt was written by Latham and directed by Gary Schwartz. The set is by Sean McCarthy, lighting by Jeff Croiter, and sound by John Colins. -- by Diane Snyder and David Lefkowitz
