The Thing About Men to Receive London Run at Fringe Landor Theatre
16 Apr 2012
The Thing About Men, by the team of Tony winner Joe DiPietro (Memphis) and Jimmy Roberts, who previously collaborated on the long-running Off-Broadway success I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change, is to be staged at London's Landor Theatre in Clapham. It will begin performances May 15 prior to an official opening May 18, for a four-week run through June 9.
The show will be produced by the same producers (Theatrica Ltd) and creative team members responsible for the award-winning Landor production of The Hired Man, including director Andrew Keates, choreographer Cressida Carré, and lighting designer Howard Hudson, joined by musical director Joanna Cichonska and designer Martin Thomas.
According to press materials, The Thing About Men is that they are "enigmatic, especially to women. Their innermost thoughts and desires tend not to be revealed, except occasionally, and only in desperation. They lie, they cheat, then lie some more when they are found out. Men lie to each other, the fools, so much - until they find themselves in ridiculous situations they can't get out of."
The show, which tells a story of love, hate and infidelity, is based on Doris Dorrie's German film "Mãnner." Casting is still to be announced.
