RENT CONTROL –
THE BREAKOUT HIT OF FRINGE ENCORE SERIES 2016
AT THE SOHO PLAYHOUSE IS EXTENDED
Sold-out performances and enthusiastic audiences lead to extension Oct 22 - Nov 12
New York, NY…October 17, 2016 – Rent Control, written and performed by Evan Zes, a personal story of survival as a struggling actor living in the heart of New York City, is the official breakout hit of this year’s Fringe Encore Series 2016 at SoHo Playhouse. It will be extended for an additional four weeks, running in the Huron Club, Thursdays at 7: OOPM and Saturdays at 9:00PM, October 22 – November 12.
Evan Zes, an actor/writer, recently seen in Arthur Miller’s critically acclaimed Incident at Vichy at the Signature Theatre, portrays some 30 different characters in this wild-but TRUE one-man-play that recounts a period in his life as he struggled to survive, live and pursue his acting career in New York City.
When Evan falls backwards into one of the few remaining rent-controlled apartments in NYC, he finds a way to make money and pursue his dream, turning the apartment into a lucrative Airbnb scheme – that is until his moneymaking scheme backfires threatening to ruin his life. This cautionary tale has had audiences howling with laughter and at the same time on the edge of their seats. Critics have called it “…cheerfully profane,” a “…surprise thriller“ and “…dangerously hilarious”.
Rent Control has had back-to-back sold out runs beginning with its debut at the 2016 New York International Fringe Festival and following with the 2016 Fringe Encore Series. Now extended for another four-week run, the play’s supporters are excited to see it continue its successful journey.
Tickets are currently available for the October 22 – November 12 run of Rent Control at SoHo Playhouse, Huron Club, 15 Vandam Street, New York City 10013. To purchase tickets, visit www.sohoplayhouse.com or call (212) 691-1555. Tickets are $25.00 each.
