Adam Strausss hit solo show, "The Mushroom Cure," will return to The Marsh Berkeley for a limited run. It will run in repertory with his spontaneous comedic show, "Adam Strauss is Not Unhappy.""The Mushroom Cure" was inspired by a scientific study showing that hallucinogenic mushrooms may cure obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), which launched Strauss on a program of vigilante psychopharmacology. The true tale of Strausss hilarious, harrowing, and heartrending attempts to treat his debilitating OCD with psychedelics was an Off-Broadway hit, where it was named Critics Pick by Time Out New York and hailed by The New York Times as mining a great deal of laughter from disabling pain before moving to San Francisco for an extended run. It then moved to Chicago, where the Chicago Tribune praised it as arrestingly honest and howlingly funny.Dark Nights: April 2930May 28
