Master clowns Bill Irwin (Scapin, Waiting for Godot), a two-time Tony winner, and David Shiner (Cirque du Soleil, Seussical) bring their stage hit Old Hats to A.C.T. Their hilarious new work features original music, imaginative movement and a captivating use of technology designed to bring a smile to your face. Shiner and Irwin also co-created the Broadway hit Fool Moon, which ran through most of the '90s and racked up two Tonys, a Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle awards. A continuation of Fool Moon, the joyful Old Hats won the 2013 Lucille Lortel Award for Outstanding Alternative Theatrical Experience and the 2013 Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Revue. Irwin took home his Tonys for his dramatic role in Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? along with Fool Moon, but he may be best known as Mr. Noodle from Elmo's World. Shiner not only originated the role of the Cat in the Hat from Broadway's Seussical, but he also wrote and directed Cirque du Soleil: KOOZA. This production features direction from Tina Landau, whose production of Saroyan's The Time of Your Life thrilled audiences in 2004. Learn More

An out of the box production! I enjoyed it so much, I had to go again. For people that have seen the multiple award movie and don't feel like going to a downer: Do not worry. The topic is dark, but the staging lighthearted - and you'll leave feeling happy. In an independent, intimate theater.

Different than the movie....but almost better...certainly better suited for cabaret. The dive theater was great. The interpretation and production were inspired and entertaining. The singing sometimes was a teensy off at times but I loved it.
Quotes & Highlights
“Hedwig and the Angry Inch brings theatre alive with the pounding sounds of rock and the funny sad voicing of a painful past. It is also an adult, thought-provoking musical about the quest for individuality.” —The New York Times

Under the direction of Nick A. Olivero, this cult musical gets a radical face-lift… again. Presented as a two-week limited engagement this past summer with multiple actors sharing the title role, it returns once again with more spectacle. Presented as a 1 hour and 30 minutes no holds barred rock show. If you saw it the first time around you’ll want to see it again, and if you missed it, here’s your chance to see what audiences were raving about.
