The Man with the Birdcage on His Head; or, My Ridiculous Life (A Folly)
...written, directed, and performed by The Magnetic Theatre's artistic director, Steven Samuels.

Also on January 23, at 10 PM to play and 11 PM just to watch, at The Dirty South (behind The Southern on Lexington Avenue), Steve, our founding producer Chall Gray, and Asheville Fringe Arts Festival's Jim Julien will co-host a version of our Magnetic Midnight renamed, for the occasion...
Magnetic Fringe Night!
Come show us what you've got! (Original works of no more than 5 minutes, in any performance genre, accepted into the show in the order received.)
And on January 24 at 9 PM, and January 26 at 6 PM, at The BeBe Theater on Commerce Street, we present the world premiere of Fringe and Magnetic favorite Julian W. Vorus's...
...a haunting and emotionally rich drama about three very different men who meet by accident on an island with unexpected, life-changing results. Starring Darren Marshall, Sean David Robinson, and Glenn Reed. Set by Gus Grissom. Lighting by Jason Williams. Directed by Steven Samuels.
