Tony Award nominees Daphne Rubin-Vega and Tom Hewitt will celebrate the works of Aaron Mark in Two Tales of Terror at the Beckett Theatre at Theatre Row, presented by All for One Theater as a Halloween offering. Daphne Rubin-Vega will reprise her role in a reading of Empanada Loca on October 28 at 3pm and Tom Hewitt will reprise his role in a reading of Another Medea a week later on November 4 at 3pm. Squeamish, the third of Mark's psychological thrillers, is currently playing through November 11 at the Beckett.

In Empanada Loca "drug dealer, masseuse, ex-con, and survivor, Dolores has led a life like no other. Now living deep under Manhattan in an abandoned subway tunnel, she has a story you won't believe- or ever forget. Inspired by the legend of Sweeney Todd, the play is about an indomitable woman who knows that in this dog-eat-dog world only one rule matters: eat or be eaten."

Another Medea "tells the story of a charismatic and enigmatic New York actor who recounts in gruesome detail how his obsessions with a wealthy doctor and the myth of Medea lead to horrific, unspeakable events."

Now in its sixth year, All for One Theater is dedicated to developing and producing extraordinary solo theater and creating sustaining careers for solo artists.
