Neil LaBute's latest, a one-man-show starring Ed Harris. Tough ticket to get.
Closing Performance at the Public: November 19, 2006
LaBute is one of the reigning Angry Young Men of the play-scribbling world, and in this piece, he scripts a funeral oration for a fellow who just lost his wife. Every effort is made for verisimilitude, to create the actual feeling of a funeral, and legendary hardnose Ed Harris talks his way through a very convoluted speech that turns into quite the "mature audiences, please" confession about the true nature of his relationship with the recently deceased.
The Public is one of the city's leading theatres, and all hands here are well-tested. Venture off the beaten Broadway path with confidence.

FULL-PRICE WAITING LIST TICKETS
On the day of a sold out performance, we will take a waiting list for full price tickets in person at the Box Office window. The waiting list will be called no earlier than 1/2 hour before curtain. If you are called and not in the lobby, your name will be removed from the list. While tickets occasionally become available in this manner, we are unable to make predictions or guarantees.
