David Greenspan will star in the Transport Group's productions of two solo shows, The Patsy and Jonas, to run in repertory at The Duke on 42nd Street beginning July 15. Jack Cummings III will direct the pieces.

Barry Conners' 1925 drawing room comedy The Patsy, which centers on the Cinderella story of a girl who is a little less beautiful and a little less loved and her fractious, gossipy family, and in it, Greenspan will bring the work's familial intrigue, marital sparring, lovers in pursuit, country club scandals, and labors of the heart to life.

Greenspan has written the one-man show Jonas, a darkly funny and mercurial exploration of doppelgängers past and present, and lives real and imagined.

The creative team for the productions will include scenic and costume designer Dane Laffrey lighting designer Mark Barton (Gatz, The Sun Also Rises); and sound designer Michael Rasbury.

Five-time Obie Award winner Greenspan's work as author and performer includes Go Back to Where You Are, Orlando, The Boys in the Band, Coraline, The Argument, Rescue Me, Lipstick Traces, She Stoops to Comedy, Some Men, and Faust.
