"What would it take to lure Paul Ryan to Off-Broadway? Perhaps Michael Yates Crowley and Michael Rau's [show]."
-The New York Times
"If you only see one free, 85-minute theatrical meditation on migraines and objectivism this year, make it [this one] . . . the piece offers a bit for everyone."
-Gothamist Daily (featured)
"The disparate elements of the piece create a dance that's fascinating to experience, engage with, and contemplate; like some of the best art they don't try to coalesce into a statement about this or that, but rather set the auditor's mind ablaze with new ideas and connections."
Playing all the characters themselves, Wolf 359's Michael Yates Crowley and Michael Rau tunnel through time and space to visit an ill Beethoven writing one of his last string quartets, a defiant Ayn Rand in the afterlife, a drag queen's debut hosting local talent night at a strip club in Peoria, and many more in this musical/comical/tragical/historical/hysterical new show. Named after that Beethoven string quartet, SONG OF A CONVALESCENT AYN RAND is an exploration of what it means to be an artist in America.
