All shows will be performed at Yale Repertory Theatre's homestage in New Haven, Connecticut. One production — the final play of the season — will be announced shortly.
The 2006-07 season (subject to change) is scheduled as follows:
Les Waters directs the latest from the pen of The Clean House who "re-imagines the classic myth of Orpheus and Eurydice through the eyes of its heroine as she journeys to the underworld and struggles to retain her memories of her lost love."
In this new comedy "about unlikely love and dirty people... Edna's life is a mess. Her new boss drives her crazy. Her brother lives in her bathtub. And don't even ask about her love life. It's time for her to roll up her sleeves and get to work."
Evan Yionoulis directs this tale, based on the Mikhail Bulgakov novel, which follows a young writer as his "dream rapidly turns into a comic nightmare when the most illustrious theatre in Moscow decides to make a play out of his failed novel. Sergei is propelled on a hilarious roller coaster ride through the tumultuous world of Stalinist Russia where he finds himself at the mercy of an absurdly autocratic director."
Lulu by Frank Wedekind (March 30-April 21, 2007)
Mark Lamos directs the work by German playwright Frank Wedekind about one woman who "is the virgin and the vamp, the femme fatale and the eternal feminine… in short, the reflection of every man's desire. Men would kill for her and die for her – and they do." For subscriptions to the 2005-06 season at Yale Rep, 1120 Chapel Street (at York St.) in New Haven, CT, call (203) 432-1234.
