Dates & Casting Announced for World Premiere of ‘30s Musical Extravaganza Stop Hitting Yourself at LCT
The cast of 'Stop Hitting Yourself'
Rude Mechs company members will star in 'Stop Hitting Yourself' at LCT.

Thomas Graves, Heather Hanna, Joey Hood, Hannah Kenah, Lana Lesley, E. Jason Liebrecht and Paul Soileau are jumping into a time machine and heading all the way back to the 1930s in the new Busby Berkeley-esque extravaganza Stop Hitting Yourself by Kirk Lynn. Directed by Shawn Sides, the Lincoln Center Theater presentation will begin performances January 15 at off-Broadway’s Claire Tow Theater, with opening night set for January 27. Tickets are now available.

Part Pygmalion, part self-help lexicon, part ‘30s musical spectacle, Stop Hitting Yourself digs deep into the contemporary conservative dilemma—how to honor steely individualism without disavowing the virtue of charity—all while tap-dancing around a queso fountain. In Stop Hitting Yourself, a Socialite discovers a Wildman in the forest and tries to improve him.

Graves, Hanna, Hood, Kenah, Lesley, Liebrecht and Soileu are all members of the ensemble-based theater collective Rude Mechs, based in Austin, TX. The company has been creating original theater productions since 1995. Previous off-Broadway Rude Mechs shows include Dionysus in 69 and The Method Gun.

Stop Hitting Yourself features sets by Mimi Lien, costumes by Emily Rebholz, lighting by Brian H Scott and original music and sound by Graham Reynolds.
