Image: John MalkovichWho: Emmy Award winner John Malkovich stars in a drama for one actor, two opera singers and an orchestra. Mr. Malkovich has acted in approximately seventy films. He received Academy Award nominations for Places in the Heart and In the Line of Fire and appeared in such successful movies as Empire of the Sun, The Killing Fields and Dangerous Liaisons.

What: The Infernal Comedy: Confessions of a Serial Killer is based on the real-life story of the notorious convicted serial killer Jack Unterweger. At times darkly comic, at other times bleak and brutal, The Infernal Comedy is an intriguing and innovative approach to delving into the twisted mind of, as Malkovich puts it, "a bad, bad guy." Watching John Malkovich perform, we immediately connect to the ideal for which dramatic art is made: the presence of the moment. Tickets: $95, $85.
