Produced by five-time Emmy & Tony Award winner Neil Patrick Harris, Werner Entertainment, Tony Award winner Forbes Candlish, and Prediction Productions, IN & OF ITSELF began previews on April 5, 2017, and opened to resounding critical acclaim on April 12, 2017, breaking the Daryl Roth Theatre's box office record for highest advance sales in history. The show transferred to New York from a smash-hit 2016 engagement at Geffen Playhouse in Los Angeles, where it extended five times and became their highest-grossing show to date.
A mysterious story is deciphered and the illusion of one's own identity is revealed in Derek DelGaudio's groundbreaking theatrical experience IN & OF ITSELF. A modern allegory, IN & OF ITSELF explores new ways of seeing the unseeable, as memories from yesterday, inexplicable events witnessed today, and secrets imagined for tomorrow, are blended together to create a perpetual paradox of a show. Glenn Kaino (2004 Whitney Biennial, U.S. Representative to the 13th Cairo Biennale) serves as Artistic Producer of the production, which also features Original Music by Devo frontman Mark Mothersbaugh, and Production Design by A.BANDIT.
DelGaudio is a writer, performance artist, and three-time Academy of Magical Arts Award-winning magician. He wrote and starred in the critically acclaimed show Nothing to Hide, which played sold-out engagements in LA and NYC. He was selected to be the Artist in Residence for Walt Disney Imagineering and co-founded, along with Kaino, the performance-art collective, A.BANDIT. In April 2017, DelGaudio became one of the youngest artists to receive the Academy of Magical Arts' "Magician of the Year" award, joining the ranks of such luminaries as David Copperfield, Penn & Teller and Ricky Jay.
Frank Oz is a four-time Emmy Award winner, whose directing work includes such feature films as Little Shop of Horrors, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, In & Out, The Score and Death at a Funeral. As a performer, he has voiced such iconic characters as Yoda in the Star Wars franchise, Miss Piggy and Fozzie Bear on "The Muppet Show," and Grover and Cookie Monster on "Sesame Street." Oz is a recipient of The Art Director's Guild Award, The Comedy Award, Saturn Lifetime Achievement Award and George Foster Peabody Award, among others.
