Geffen Playhouse Extends IN & OF ITSELF for Fifth and Final Time

Due to continued, extraordinary demand, the Geffen Playhouse has extended the world premiere of IN & OF ITSELF, the latest production by master storyteller and award-winning magician Derek DelGaudio, for a FINAL three-week run, now through August 28, 2016 in the Audrey Skirball Kenis Theater at the Geffen Playhouse.

This marks the FIFTH extension for the unique theatrical experience, which has garnered rave reviews, officially making it the most commercially successful production the Geffen Playhouse has had in the Audrey Skirball Kenis since the 2012 premier of Nothing To Hide, also by DelGaudio.

"One of the things that makes In & Of Itself so unique," said Geffen Playhouse Executive Director Gil Cates, Jr. "is the way Derek places the audience at the center of the narrative. It's been exhilarating to watch people leave the theater awe-struck night after night."

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."

In & Of Itself is a show constructed as a metaphoric labyrinth, filled with allegorical illusions. Audiences are invited to explore themes of identity and paradoxical truths in this radically new theatrical experience. "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."

Ticket prices start at $75 and are available in-person at the Geffen Playhouse box office, via phone at 310.208.5454 or online at Based on seat availability, $35 Rush Tickets are available at the box office 30 minutes prior to curtain time. Fees may apply.
