Peter DuBois directs the work that is slated to officially open March 18 at the Public Theater's Martinson Hall for a limited run through April 8. The play, which marks the first time Ortiz and Hoffman have shared a stage, is described thusly: "Laced with cooking classes, swimming lessons and a smorgasbord of illegal drugs, Jack Goes Boating is a story of date panic, marital meltdown, betrayal and the prevailing grace of the human spirit."

The company recently presented a reading of A View from 151st Street, another Glaudini-DuBois collaboration at the seventh annual free Barn Series Festival. Playwright Glaudini also wrote Dutch Heart of Man, which was previously produced by LAByrinth.

The design team for Jack Goes Boating includes David Korins (set), Mimi O'Donnell (costumes), Japhy Weideman (lighting) and David Van Tieghem (composition and sound).

The 15th anniversary season of the LAByrinth will continue with Eric Bogosian's This Is Now! penned with musician-composer Elliott Sharp; as well as developmental productions of Carlo Alban's intríngulis and Andrea Ciannavei's Pretty Chin Up.

A limited amount of $20 rush tickets (payable by cash only with a limit of two per person) will be available at each performance to be released one hour before curtain.

For tickets to Jack Goes Boating at the Public Theater, 425 Lafayette Street, call (212) 967-7555 or visit labtheater.org.
