Playing “Mindgame(s)”

It’s been a little while since I last made it to the theater, but there’s a new show in town that I’m definitely going to see. The play is a thriller called “Mindgame” and it stars the Oscar-winning Keith Carradine.

Here’s a quick synopsis: A reporter thinks he’s landed the interview of his career with an infamous, insane criminal, but after arriving at the asylum, his plans quickly go awry as he discovers things aren’t what they seem. I love a good mystery, and this play promises to keep the audience in suspense right through the final scene.

The performance on Tuesday, December 23 has a special significance to my friends at the Humane Society of New York. On that night, a portion of each ticket purchased will be donated to fund the care we provide to the animals in our shelter and hospital.

An animal lover himself, Mr. Carradine chose to drive 36 hours rather than fly from California because he wanted to make the journey as comfortable as possible for his two elderly cats. So if Mr. Carradine can handle the drive from California, it shouldn’t be too hard for the rest of us animal/thriller-lovers to get to the Soho Playhouse, 15 Vandam Street, at 8:00 pm on Tuesday, December 23.

See you there!
