THE MOTHERF**KER WITH THE HAT
by Stephen Adly Guirgis
directed by Michael John Garcés
January 6-27, 2013

Julianne Argyros Stage

Set smack in the middle of New York’s mean streets, this Broadway hit is exhilarating, hilarious—and totally irreverent.  Recently sprung from prison, Jackie has an AA sponsor and is back with Veronica, the love of his life since eighth grade.  The problem is, Veronica can’t shake her drug habit, and she refuses to answer when he asks about “the man hat that-ain’t-my-hat” on their bedside table. But Jackie is a survivor, and if he sometimes loses sight of his goal, he never loses his decency, in this surprising examination of acceptance, loyalty and love.
