Elevator Repair Service, the theatre ensemble behind the word-for-word presentation of The Great Gatsby, titled Gatz, will return to the New York stage this spring as part of Abrons Arts Center’s 2017–2018 season. Everyone’s Fine with Virginia Woolf, an irreverent parody of Edward Albee’s Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, will begin performances at the downtown venue in May 2018.

John Collins will direct the comedy, which was written by Kate Scelsa for Elevator Repair Service. Performances will run through June 17.

Among the additional titles on tap for the Lower East Side company are an adaptation of Roberto Bolaño’s novel Distant Star from the Brooklyn-based troupe Caborca (running September 14–October 1), Blackouts from drag impersonator Dickie Beau (October 5–8), and Aloha, Aloha or When I Was Queen from writer and performer Eliza Bent (April 4–21).

The season also includes nine dance events, as well as music and politically charged performance art offerings.
