Another play starring Baryshnikov, co-starring Willem Defoe:


The Old Woman will run July 4-7 at Manchester's Palace Theatre. Directed by Robert Wilson and developed with and starring dancer and actor Mikhail Baryshnikov, it is an adaptation of the work of the same name by Russian author Daniil Kharm, written in the 1930s. It will co-star Willem Dafoe, and follows the story of a struggling writer who cannot find peace with himself. Commissioned and produced by Manchester International Festival, Spoleto Festival dei 2Mondi, Théâtre de la Ville-Paris/Festival d’Automne à Paris and deSingel, Antwerp, it is a Baryshnikov Productions, Change Performing Arts and The Watermill Center project.

Thanks, California. Sounds like a combination that'll leave 'em laughing. I wonder which one has the title role (joke)?
