Ilia Volok's critically acclaimed one-man show, DIARY OF A MADMAN, was just nominated for a New York Innovative Theater Award in the best solo performance category. When I saw the show last fall, I noticed it drew a particularly eclectic audience--people of all ages, from all walks of life. That popular demand that led to an extended run came as no surprise to me because Gogol's classic, poignantly brought to life, deals with loneliness and the human propensity for dreams and delusions. Volok's bittersweet portrayal of Poprishchin made the character an Everyman instead of a farce. I knew show had universal appeal, but I wouldn't have guessed its next stop would be Dubai.
