Third Rail is one of the best theater companies in town, period, and with this season’s move to downtown’s World Trade Center Theater, the deserving troupe is poised to attract a bigger audience than ever. Their new season opens with Dead Funny, about a woman whose husband is more interested in dead British comedians than preserving their marriage. Dead Funny is genuinely funny and at times rather shocking, in a Harry Potter-in-Equus sort of way. The show inhabits an unhappy intersection of slapstick and melodrama, setting costumes and artifice against emotional pain and physical nudity—and in handling the material with sophistication and intelligence, Third Rail once again delivers the high level of entertainment audiences have come to expect.AH
