News   LAByrinth's Massacre Sets New Fall Dates; Bad Things Due in 2006
Labyrinth Theater Company, which postponed its world premiere of José Rivera's Massacre (Sing to Your Children) earlier this year, has rescheduled it for an Oct. 5-23 run.

"José wrote the play for specific members of LAByrinth Theatre Company," explained LAB co-artistic director John Ortiz in a release at the time of the postponement. "Due to scheduling conflicts, we are postponing our production of Massacre with a view toward doing it next season."

Kate Whoriskey will direct the tale of seven people who join together to kill a neighbor who may or may not stay dead. It will play at The Public Theater's Shiva Theatre.

Also set for LAByrinth's 2005-06 season is All the Bad Things by Cusi Cram, to begin in January 2006.

The story tells of Fernanda, who lives in a small apartment in Greenwich Village with her sick mother and her husband, who has braces and no job, while her brother-in-law has recently converted to the Mormon faith. And then? The city announces her rent stabilized apartment is about to become de-stabilized.

The play purports to ask a question which has no doubt occured to many current New Yorkers: "Where can the fragile, the artistic, the underemployed find refuge in a city that is no longer kind to its eccentrics and Bohemians?" Bad Things is a developmental production.
