About The Man Who Ate Michael Rockefeller - Off Broadway

Show Info


THE MAN WHO ATE MICHAEL ROCKEFELLER - Jeff Cohen's play that enjoyed great success during its world-premiere at the West End Theatre off-off-Broadway in Manhattan in the fall - returns for a limited engagement Off-Broadway at the Arclight Theatre (152 W. 71 St.).

Written by Jeff Cohen and based on a short story by Christopher Stokes, THE MAN WHO ATE ROCKEFELLER is directed by Alfred Preisser -- the founding artistic director of the award-winning Classical Theatre of Harlem.

THE MAN WHO ATE MICHAEL ROCKEFELLER takes a startling and surprisingly humorous, upside-down view of what happens when the Western world intrudes on an ancient, so-called primitive culture, telling the story from the native peoples’ point-of-view: set among the Asmat tribe of New Guinea, the play explores the still-unsolved disappearance in 1961 of Michael C. Rockefeller, the 23-year-old son of New York Governor Nelson Rockefeller and a celebrated anthropologist who collected artifacts from the Asmat culture during two expeditions there.
