Kicking off its final week at the Geffen Playhouse, IN & OF ITSELF, the latest production by master storyteller and award-winning magician Derek DelGaudio, will feature an exclusive, intimate, one-time-only post-show Q&A with the creative team that has made the production one of the most successful in the 20-year history of the Geffen Playhouse. The Tuesday, August 23rd post-performance discussion will feature DelGaudio along with director Frank Oz, producer Glenn Kaino and acclaimed illusionist Michael Weber fielding audience questions about the making of this radically new theatrical experience. A cocktail reception for the show creators and audience will follow the discussion.

Directed by four-time Emmy winner Frank Oz, featuring original music by Mark Mothersbaugh, the show is produced by Glenn Kaino, and presented in association with Tom Werner. "Developing this show has been a transformative experience," said DelGaudio, "What began as a deeply personal endeavor has evolved into this remarkable collaboration."

"Imagine what Samuel Becket would have written if he'd been optimistic, American, and a virtuoso magician," said magician Teller after experiencing the show. Penn Jillette noted, "Derek has created the best magic show I've ever seen and that might be damning with faint praise. It's Marcel Duchamp and Andy Kaufman if they could do perfect bottom deals. It will blow your mind."
