John Malkovich, star or movies like In the Line of Fire, Empire of the Sun, The Killing Fields and, of course, Being John Malkovich, will be in Fairfield Tuesday night (for one night only) to perform a one-man play (well, there are two opera singers and an orchestra too, but he's the only actor) about real-life convicted murderer Jack Unterweger called The Infernal Comedy: Confessions of a Serial Killer. At times is bleak, at times its darkly comic. But the real treat here is getting to see Malkovich demonstrate his dramatic acting chops in a raw, intimate setting.
