Since the play opened in NY's East Village in 1965, over 4000 productions of the have been done around the world, and this is the first adaptation since 1971. "Birdbath" takes place over the course of one February night in New York. It is an "encounter" between two strangers, a lonely waitress and a prodigal poet, who, over the course of the night, form an unexpected connection.
