“Zero Hour,” the well-received solo play about Zero Mostel, will transfer next month to the DR2 Theater for an open-ended Off Broadway run.
Helmed by Piper Laurie, “Zero” stars writer-performer Jim Brochu as late comedian/thesp and blacklisted McCarthy witchhunt target Mostel, who in the play is giving an interview in his painting studio in 1977.
Show has played both Los Angeles and Washington, D.C. Current run at Gotham’s Theater at St. Clement’s opened to strong reviews in November but must end its limited engagement Jan. 31.
