BD Wong will perform in the one-man musical Herringbone, presented by Dixon Place. Wong, best known for his Tony Award winning performance in M. Butterfly and his role in Law & Order: SVU, will appear in Herringbone for two performances only, Monday May 21 and Tuesday May 22, at 7pm.

Herringbone has a book by Tom Cone (based upon his play), music by Skip Kennon and lyrics by Ellen Fitzhugh. Herringbone is written as a traditional two-act musical with a score of more than 14 songs and 11 characters. The conceit of a single performer enacting all of the characters underlines its theme of the human struggle to negotiate the light and dark sides within.

Wong has headlined four critically-acclaimed productions of the ambitious musical - in which he enacts, sings and dances at least 11 characters - including the Williamstown Theatre Festival (2007), McCarter Theatre (2008), and La Jolla Playhouse (2009), all directed by Tony Award-winner Roger Rees .

Reprising their work on this project from the other productions are Darren Lee (choreography), Dan Lipton (music direction), Scott Lehrer and Leon Rothenberg (sound design), and William Ivey Long (costumes).
