David Duchovny to Make Off-Broadway Stage Debut

David Duchovny is set to make his stage debut in an Off-Broadway play by Neil LaBute this October!

The 49-year-old Californication actor will star in The Break of Noon, about a man who “amidst the chaos and horror of the worst office shooting in American history, sees the face of God,” setting off a “maelstrom of disbelief among everyone he knows,” according to the New York Times.

Californication is currently filming its fourth season, which is scheduled to begin airing on September 11!

All the White ancestry he’s got (including Scottish blood) and it still couldn’t get rid of all the Semitic features he’s retained, like that huge nose.

Seeing as he’s part Jewish and all, I do wonder if he or a family member of his ever contributed a tale here:

Oresteia by Aeschylus
in off Broadway theatre of New York “Kirk Theatre”
from the Theatre Group of Leonidas Loizidis
http://www.loizidis.com

Oresteia by Aeschylus is performed in off Broadway theatre of New York
“Kirk Theatre”, by Leonidas Loizidis. The awarded director and producer,
after the successful world tours of the performances “Bakches” and “Trojan
women” two years ago and last year respectively, come this fall with a new
dynamic presence in the theatrical proceedings, directing the trilogy of
Oresteia by Aeschylus in the centre of Manhhatan, there where strikes the
heart of the theatre in the modern world, and in particular in the English
language. Thus, the Greeks in America, the Americans, but also the
tourists from all over the world will crowd the theatres of Broadway, and
will have the chance to enjoy ancient tragedy, in the way that was
presented by the ancient Greeks. The cast, juvenile and alive, it is
certain that will drift in the vibrations of Aeschylus the public, while
the music takes off the spectators, making them simultaneously
participants of its Hellenism.
But the performance will not stay only in Broadway. Leonidas Loizidis,
faithful to his vision of handing over the torch of ancient Greek culture,
as he did other years so this year as well he will tour with his theater
group in various academic cities of abroad, directing Oresteia in the
Greek language this time, with English subtitles.
And afterwards, what? The tireless director does not stop there, as he is
preparing already his next step. Leonidas Loizidis, with the collaboration
of writer Kate Nikolopoulos in the attribution of the texts and in the
verses of songs, and Helen-Fedra’s in the musical composition, he prepares
for the continuity the representation of the tragedy of Sophocles “Oedipus
King – On Kolono”, tranfering in the whole world the primeval knowledge
and the Greek culture.

5 reasons to view Oresteia by Leonidas Loizides
1) “So this is tragedy”, said Aristotle. And Leonidas Loizides presents
tragedy in the same way that the ancient Greeks did.
2) Respect to the ancient texts and the ancient scenes without alterations
and modern presumptions.
3) Only the knowledge of the ancient tragedy may give the baton to the
modern theater.
4) The Greek tragedies are full of messages about justice, love, peace,
from 2,500 years ago, messages always well-timed.
5) Theater is a study, aesthetics, education of the soul. And these are
given clearly by Leonidas Loizides directing Aeschylus.
