Uncle Philip’s Coat

Actor JC Cutler plays three different characters in Matty Selman’s play, “Uncle Philip’s Coat,” which first premiered in New York in 1998. First, he plays Matty, a middle-aged struggling actor, who inherits an old coat after the death of his uncle, Philip Louis Zhivatovsky. He also plays Philip, and Matty’s father, Mickey. Through the play, he learns about the coat’s history, from Russian pogroms to Coney Island to the streets of New York City. Craig Johnson directs this piece, which closes at the end of the weekend. Thursday, Nov. 10 at 7:30 p.m., Saturday, Nov. 12 at 8 p.m. and Sunday, Nov. 13 at 1 p.m. at Six Points Theater. More information here.
