Peter DuBois will direct the work slated to begin Feb. 27, 2007, and open March 18 at the Public Theater's Martinson Hall. Tickets go on sale for the run Jan. 7; LAB subscribers can acquire tickets now. The play, which will mark 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 currently presents its seventh annual free Barn Series Festival — which features a reading of another Glaudini-DuBois collaboration, A View from 151st Street. Playwright Glaudini also wrote Dutch Heart of Man which was previously produced by LAByrinth.
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.
For tickets or a LABPASS (available until Jan. 5) to the season at the Public Theater (425 Lafayette Street), call (212) 260-2400 or visit labtheater.org.
