Ethan Coen returning to stage E-mail

If you know much about the Coen Brothers, you know they're comprised of the older Joel and younger Ethan.  Ethan has also done some side writing here and there.  Due to a great tip from a friend, I was able to pick up Gates of Eden on cassette for just $1, used, on Amazon.  Gates of Eden is a collection of short stories and the tapes had actors reading them - people like John Goodman, John Turturro, Steve Buscemi, Matt Dillon, Ben Stiller and others.

Anyways, back to the point of this post, Ethan is returning to the theater with a new collection of one-act plays called Offices.  They'll be about white collar workers.  This is just screaming Office Space or The Office.  Put a Coen Brother script twist on that and I'm drooling.

Previews are set to begin on April 15th and the premiere is May 7th.  The show only runs for a month and ends May 31st.  I'm most likely not going to get a chance to go.  Did anybody attend Almost an Evening?  That's the first off-Broadway project Ethan did.  A book version is available on Amazon.

Big thanks to Coenesque for the heads up - http://coenbrothers.net/blog/ethan-co en-going-off-broadway-again/169/
