Personal Space Theatrics presents Julien Schwab's fourth-wall breaking comedy rogerandtom - one hour of mind-bending, head-scratching, meta-meta-quasi-romanti-tragi-dramedy, where they don't just break the fourth wall - they obliterate it! Directed by Personal Space Theatrics' Artistic Director Nicholas Cotz ("BecauseHeCan"), rogerandtom begins previews March 1 prior to an official press opening of March 7 at HERE (145 Sixth Avenue, NY, NY). For tickets and information, go to here.org or call 212-352-3101.
Bringing "meta-theatre" to a new level in Julien Schwab's rogerandtom, Penny is Penny. But Richard is William. And you are just a member of the audience...or are you?
