Former acting director and teacher Paul Walker is hooked up to a life-sustaining respirator in the last week of his life. Friends and family stop by the ICU to say good byes and solve grievances. Intrinsic monologues, competition, and reflection—all delivered by one man. James Lecesne, best known for his one-man performance "The Absolute Brightness of Leonard Pelkey," acts in this production on death and dying written by Eve Ensler and directed by Tony Speciale. "It is impossible not to be stirred by the emotional urgency behind 'Extraordinary Measures,'" says New York Times reviewer Ben Brantley. Saturday, November 5, at the Garrison Institute. $35. (845) 424-4800; Garrisoninstitute.org.
