In the late 1990s, Bulgarian director Prodan Dimov helmed a lively production of a one-man show based on the classic, comedic short story "Diary of a Madman" by Nikolai Gogol. For the inaugural season of his new theater company, Metropolis Port (co-founded with Mary Claire Dunn), Dimov offers a new page of his award-winning DIARY OF A MADMAN, continuing Thurs., MARCH 27. New York actor Jon Hayden plays a minor Russian civil servant who becomes increasingly unhinged and convinced that he is, in fact, Spanish royalty. Haven't we all been there? Through April 12. $15-$20. Thurs.-Sat., 8 p.m.; Sun., 3 p.m. 14th Street Playhouse, Stage 3, 173 14th St. 404-733-4738 www.metropolisport.org.
