The Off-Broadway troupe — who will again take up residence at Theatre Row — has announced the productions to be featured in its 13th season. Dates and further details are yet to be revealed.
Hawke — who starred in The New Group's recent revival of David Rabe's Hurlyburly — will direct Jonathan Marc Sherman's Things We Want. The co-founder and artistic director of the New York City-based nonprofit theatre company Malaparte has previously directed the films "Straight to One," "Chelsea Walls" and "The Hottest State."
Elliott returns to the work of playwright Leigh — whose Abigail's Party he directed two seasons ago — with the production of Two Thousand Years. The new work (seen last year at London's National Theatre) continues the collaboration of Elliott and Leigh, who also teamed on Goose-Pimples and Smelling a Rat.
Mark Brokaw — who staged Off-Broadway's recent American Fiesta and Suddenly Last Summer — will direct Mouth to Mouth by Kevin Elyot. New Group previously presented the playwright's My Night With Reg. Other directing credits for Brokaw include Reckless, The Constant Wife, How I Learned to Drive, Lobby Hero, The Long Christmas Ride Home, The Baltimore Waltz and The Busy World Is Hushed.
