Director and actor Ben Rimalower will be leaving his solo show Patti Issues on September 8, after a year of performances at The Duplex. The hit show won't close when its author/actor departs, however, according to TimeOut. Instead, two-time Tony-nominated Broadway favorite Robin De Jesús (La Cage aux Folles) will take over the role of Rimalower.

Patti Issues, which has been directed by Aaron Mark, is a personal memoir of Rimalower's life. When Rimalower was 8 years old, his father came out of the closet and embarked on a drug-fueled tear that left his family in tatters. Amid the chaos of his young life, Ben found comfort in musical theater, and specifically in the transporting voice of Broadway star Patti LuPone.
