"PR Man," which opened in New York city on June 15, will run for the next two weekends through July 1. Written and directed by Robert Lyons, and based on Toxic Sludge Is Good For You by John Stauber and Sheldon Rampton, the play examines one PR man's strategic damage control surrounding a grassroots protest of "bio-soil" -- toxic sludge used as fertilizer. Bogus experts, seduction, and crafted deniability fuel a momentum that even he can't control in this fast-paced, sexually-charged comic drama. As a special bonus, the evening also includes a screening of This Modern World by Tom Tomorrow videos, including "Sparkman vs. the WTO, Parts 1 & 2." PR MAN is showing at the Ohio Theatre, 66 Wooster Street between Spring and Broome. Tickets are $15. For reservations call 212-966-4844. A note to all NYC area flacks: Friday, June 22 is PR industry night. If you show a PR business card you're invited to the post-performance party.
