He has been active Off-Off-Broadway continuously for over forty years and is numbered among the innovators of the movement -- indeed, having given the name “Off-Off-Broadway” in jest to a Village Voice writer who subsequently created listings headed as “Off-Off-Broadway”. His plays have often been controversial, most notably “Xircus, the Private Life of Jesus Christ” and "Superfreak, the Death of Joe Cino", both of which he was the author.
