A story in BroadwayWorld.com says, “alk Is Free Theatre [TIFT] unveiled the vision for the last production of its current season, the rarely produced satirical musical “Stop the World – I Want to Get Off!”

“While it is written as a large-scale work with a full cast, TIFT’s version will feature only one actor, Daren Herbert, who will play every role, including the leading man Littlechap and all the women in his life. The production will involve projections, through which Herbert will act opposite many versions of himself.

“Actor Daren Herbert was last seen in the Acting Up Stage’s production of The Wild Party and TIFT’s co-production [with Patrick Street Productions] of Floyd Collins.

“At the time of its premiere in England in 1961, “Stop the World – I Want to Get Off!” was considered ahead of its time and was one of the first concept musicals. Written by Anthony Newley and Leslie Bricusse, the show features an Everyman whose rise to success is countered by the instability of his private life.”

“Stop the World – I Want to Get Off!” will preview on May 21, before officially opening on May 22 and running until May 30. For more information, visit the TIFT website or call 705-792-1949.
