Dixon Place will present its new theatrical commission Blacktop Highway, written and performed by John Fleck, for six performances November 4-19. Randee Trabitz will direct.

Inspired by classic horror cinema and Freud’s theories of mind and ego, Blacktop Highway weaves video and theatrical staging with John Fleck’s remarkable vocal qualities, leading the audience into a darkly comic world of sex, greed, and religion as Fleck performs more than 10 roles.

The creative team includes costumes by Christina Wright, video design by Heather Fipps, puppet design by Christine Papalexis, and original lighting design by Anne Militello.

This Dixon Place commission is made possible with public funds from NY State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the NY State Legislature and NYC Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
