Ben Rimalower's Patti Issues will return to The Duplex later this month for a two-performance run on November 21 and 22. Aaron Mark directs the production, which initially played a 14-month engagement that started in 2012 at the venue.

Patti Issues explores Rimalower's childhood. When he was eight 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 — like so many gay boys before him and after — found comfort in musical theater, and specifically in the voice of Broadway star Patti LuPone.

The long-running solo show won MAC and Bistro Awards and was an official selection of both the Adelaide Cabaret Festival and Eugene O’Neill Theater Center Summer Conference. His new show, Bad With Money, runs at The Duplex through December 18.
