Ken Russell???

70s British badboy director Ken Russell is making his New York stage directing the Soho Playhouse? With this show???

Tony Award nominated actor Keith Carradine (The Will Rogers Follies, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Nashville, Dexter) returns to the New York stage in the premiere of Anthony Horowitz’s acclaimed thriller, MINDGAME.

Ken Russell, the celebrated director of the films Tommy, Women In Love and The Boy Friend, makes his New York stage directorial debut with MINDGAME.

When a writer of pulp crime novels gets an interview with a notorious serial killer he believes he has snared the coup of his career. But when he arrives at the asylum, he finds nothing can be trusted, not even his own eyes. Through a series of lies, manipulations and memories, dark secrets are revealed. Why is there a skeleton in the doctor’s office? Where did the raw meat in the fridge come from? What is the nurse so afraid of? And most importantly, how does one get out?

Thank god for those vanity projects--they're what's left of commercial Off Broadway.

No producer's name to be seen in these ads, oddly. Anywhere.

Hey, why can't I ever get one of these vanity projects up and running? I am as vain as anybody else!
