Thom Pain (based on nothing)

October 5 - November 5, 2006

Leo K. Theater

The hit of off-Broadway when it premiered in 2005, Thom Pain (based on nothing) is one of those events in the theater that invites a string of adjectives – funny, edgy, existential, honest, engaging, raw – and yet defies classification or description. A treatise on life and love, and the profound terror of same, Thom Pain was described in the New York Times as “one of those treasured nights in the theater - treasured nights anywhere, for that matter - that can leave you both breathless with exhilaration and, depending on your sensitivity to meditations on the bleak and beautiful mysteries of human experience, in a puddle of tears. Also in stitches.” The audience is invited to join Thom in his exploration of lost love and childhood foibles, and the anxieties brought on by them. It is an odd and intoxicating affirmation of the value of being alive.
