It won an Obie Award and one Bessie Award and that, apparently, was more than enough to bring it back. It's Big Dance Theater's production of Annie-B Parson and Paul Lazar's Another Telepathic Thing, and it begins an encore run Nov. 15 at Soho's Performing Garage (home of the Wooster Group). The four week run ends Dec. 9.
The story involves Satan, who shows up in a Hollywood casting studio and starts telling Mark Twain's story, "The Mysterious Stranger." And let's just say the story goes on from there.
BDT netted a 2000 Obie cash grant for their body of work. Additionally Stacey Dawson won a Bessie for her performance, while Cynthia Hopkins won an Obie for hers. Both Dawson and Hopkins are back. Also in the cast are Tymberly Canale, Molly Hickok, Paul Lazar and David Neumann.
Tickets are $20. The Performing Garage is located ate 33 Wooster Street in Manhattan. For more information, call (21) 966-3651.
