Sitting behind a desk in the manner of his "last great hero," famed monologist Spalding Gray, Josh Lefkowitz performs Help Wanted: A Personal Search for Meaningful Employment at the Start of the 21st Century. Josh chats with the audience about everything, from video games and long-distance relationships to the struggles of the artist as a young man (such as working as a parking attendant with only hallucinated talking frogs for company, or salvaging shreds of dignity while posing for photos in an astronaut suit). Through it all, Josh's fascination with the idea that "everything comes from something" fuels his passion to tell his story.
Josh Lefkowitz is an actor, writer, and solo performer who has appeared at CENTERSTAGE (Sweeney Todd), Signature Theatre, Olney Theatre Center, Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company, and others. Help Wanted has previously been presented at DC's Capital Fringe Festival, Woolly Mammoth, and Chicago's Single File Festival. The play received its New York premiere at Access Theater in early 2006.
