As we all know, after considerable critical and audience acclaim "THE ACCIDENTAL PERVERT" Andrew Goffman's hilarious tour-de-force-of-honesty has been extended three times at The Players Theatre (115 MacDougal Street - btwn: West 3rd Street & Minetta Lane) through Saturday, June 18, 2011.
The news is, that after 18 acclaimed months and 180 sold-out performances, the mega-comedy is moving to the THIRTEENTH STREET THEATRE (50 West 13th Street - between 5th and 6th Avenues) where it will begin performances on Friday, July 15 and continue to play through Saturday, December 10th with the option to continue through 2012.
"THE ACCIDENTAL PERVERT," which began performances December 4, 2009 at The Players Theatre, has become a major Downtown-Destination-Hit !
Most have labeled it hilarious. Certainly the Press Corps has.
The audiences continue to grow as does the interest in Mr. Goffman's film version of this Off-Broadway autobiographical tell-all phenomenon.
Perhaps the ancients were right when they announced that the truth would set us all free !
ABOUT "THE ACCIDENTAL PERVERT"
At the very top of his one-man-theatrical-circus-of-full-disclosure, author/star Andrew Goffman offers the evening's warning bell in the form of an alarmingly candid disclosure: "Ya know, none of us starts out to be a pervert." The evening picks up speed from there. "THE ACCIDENTAL PERVERT" is the true accounting of one boy's odyssey to manhood via a childhood dominated by pornography, an addiction accumulated after the boy happens upon his father's collection of XXX-Rated video tapes in a bedroom closet, just to the right of his golf clubs, above the cowboy boots, behind the sweatshirts, all the way up in the top left hand corner. Andrew Goffman takes his audience on a hilarious and self-deprecating journey into a world of video vixens, X-Rated fantasies, and really DIRTY movies with no redeeming value whatsoever. He found the tapes at 11 years-of-age. The addiction controlled him until he was 26. THE YEAR HE MET HIS WIFE.
