Theater: The Gray Man

graymanpicThe award-winning moguls of “serious make believe” at Pipeline Theatre Company have transformed Soho Rep’s Walkerspace into a shabby, spooky NYC tenement with The Gray Man, a new play by Andrew Farmer. It’s a haunting reinterpretation of the classic boogeyman tale set in a New York tenement house, set to an original musical score by Billboard-charted composer Chris Ryan and Mike Brun. As a member of improv troupe Gentlemen Party, Farmer is quite skilled at larger-than-life comedy, but with this show he proves that he is just as good at sinister scares.  What better way to get in the mood for the rapidly-approaching Halloween?

The Gray Man is written by Andrew Farmer and directed by Andrew Neisler with music by Chris Ryan and Mike Brun, set design by Andy Yanni, costume design by Daniel Dabdoub, lighting design by Christopher Bowser, props by Jess Adams, and sound design by Josh Millican. Featuring Daniel Johnsen, Tahlia Ellie, Katharine Lorraine, Claire Rothrock, and Shane Ziegler.
