The mainstage 2006-2007 season for the Connecticut company has also firmed with plans to present Tennessee Williams' Summer and Smoke (a co-production with New Jersey's Paper Mill Playhouse) directed by Michael Wilson (Aug. 31-Oct. 1), Stuart Gilbert's translation of Jean Paul Sartre's No Exit directed by Jerry Mouawad (Oct. 12-Nov. 12), August Wilson's Fences (Jan. 11-Feb. 11, 2007), Doug Wright's I Am My Own Wife (Feb. 22-March 25, 2007) and Luis Alfaro's Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner (April 12-May 13, 2007). The traditional A Christmas Carol staged by Wilson will play Nov. 24-Dec. 24.
Among the options being considered for the final slot (May 24-June 24, 2007) is a stage adaptation of the Larry McMurtry novel "Terms of Endearment" — former "Dallas" star Linda Gray is reportedly attached — (James L. Brooks made the 1983 Academy Award-winning film version), William Finn's Elegies or the Long Wharf Theatre's production of Man of La Mancha.
