What happens when you cross the ’80s Madonna classic Desperately Seeking Susan with the music of Blondie in a theater in London’s West End? A train wreck. What happens when one man takes to the stage in a comedic retelling of the whole ordeal? Desperately Seeking the Exit. Watch actor and playwright Peter Michael Marino star in a solo performance about his experience conceiving and endorsing this $6 million musical, then helplessly witnessing it turn into a flop big even by ’80s standards. Obie winner John Clancy directs Marino’s healing process.
Mondays-Sundays, 8 p.m. Starts: May 11. Continues through May 18, 2012
