Performances of Thom Pain began October 23 in The Irene Diamond Stage at The Pershing Square Signature Center where they have been extended through December 2.

After debuting in London, Thom Pain (based on nothing) premiered Off-Broadway in 2005. The Signature revival is the first Legacy production since Eno completed his five-year residency at the theatre, which included productions of his play Title and Deed and the world premieres of The Open House and Wakey, Wakey.

The creative team for Thom Pain includes Amy Rubin (scenic design), Anita Yavich (costume design), Jen Schriever (lighting design), and Lee Kinney (sound design). Charles M. Turner III is the production stage manager. Casting is by Caparelliotis Casting.

Hall was most recently seen Off-Broadway in the New York Theatre Workshop production of Lazarus by David Bowie and Enda Walsh. He previously portrayed the title character in the Broadway production of Hedwig and the Angry Inch and also starred in Eno’s The Realistic Joneses on Broadway. His other Off-Broadway credits include Mr. Marmalade, Cymbeline, Macbeth, Timon of Athens, Henry V, and The English Teachers. His film and television credits include Dexter, Six Feet Under, and Game Night.
