Siganture Theatre has announced a second extension for its current production of solo show Thom Pain (based on nothing), written by Will Eno, directed by Obie Award-winner Oliver Butler and starring Golden Globe winner Michael C. Hall, which will now run through to December 9, 2018 at the Pershing Square Signature Center's Irene Diamond Stage.

Performances began on October 23, 2018, ahead of an official opening on November 11, and the production was originally scheduled to run through to November 25, 2018, before an initial extension through to December 2.

Synopsis: "This surreal and very real one-man show follows Thom Pain as he desperately, and hilariously, tries to save his own life...or at least make it into something worth dying for."

The creative team for the production features scenic design by Amy Rubin, costume design by Anita Yavich, lighting design by Jen Schriever, and sound design by Lee Kinney.

Michael C. Hall is perhaps best known for his Golden Globe-winning role as Dexter Morgan on Showtime's hit TV series "Dexter," which has also earned him 5 Emmy Award nominations and a further 4 Golden Globe nominations over the years. He also earned a 2002 Emmy Award nomination for his role as David Fisher on the HBO series "Six Feet Under". He was last seen on stage in the London and New York Theatre Workshop productions of David Bowie & Enda Walsh's Lazarus, earning Drama Desk, Drama League and Lucille Lortel Award nominations in 2016. His Broadway credits include the title role in Hedwig and the Angry Inch, John Jones in The Realistic Joneses, Billy Flynn in Chicago, Master of Ceremonies in Cabaret, and his Broadway debut in Skylight in 1996. He has also appeared off-Broadway in the title role of Mr. Marmalade for Roundabout Theatre Company, in Corpus Christi for Manhattan Theatre Club, as Malcolm in the Public Theater's 1998 revival of Macbeth, and in the Public's "Shakespeare in the Park" productions of Cymbeline, Timon of Athens, and Henry V.

Thom Pain (based on nothing) Tickets are available now for performances through to December 9, 2018.
