'A Man's a Man'

The Classic Stage Company’s off-Broadway production of Bertolt Brecht’s A Man’s A Man has canceled its performance January 17 due to an injury sustained during last night’s show. Bill Buell, who plays Jeraiah Jip and has no understudy, fractured his ankle while off-stage due to a set malfunction. The remainder of the show was canceled on January 16. A Man’s A Man started preview performances on January 10, with opening night set for January 30. A replacement actor is currently being found.

Directed by Brian Kulick, A Man’s A Man's cast also includes Justin Vivian Bond, Gibson Frazier, Martin Moran, Jason Babinsky, Steven Skybell, Stephen Spinella, Ching Valdes-Aran and Allan K. Washington. The production features new music by Grammy and Tony-winning singer-songwriter Duncan Sheik.

A Man's A Man tells the story of Galy Gay, a simple man out shopping who, by the trickery of some soldiers, is turned into a soldier, enlisted into Her Majesty’s Armed Forces and, eventually, reassembled into a killing machine. The play is Brecht’s ode to the inhumanity of man.
