Nelson, a new dark comedy by Sam Marks starring A Raisin in the Sun's Frank Harts, opened at The Lion (Theatre Row Studios, 410 W. 42nd St., between 9th and 10th Avenues), on February 20th.

"During the day, Nelson is a low-tier administrative assistant at a talent agency. At night, he's become embroiled in the creation of underground, gang-related propaganda videotapes. His obsession with a C-list actress propels the two worlds to collide, with disturbing, unsettling results," state press notes.  Presented by Partial Comfort Productions, Nelson also features Samuel Ray Gates and Alex Alioto.  Kip Fagan directs.

The show plays Wed. - Sat. at 8 PM through March 3rd.  Tickets are $15.  Visit for tickets.
