News   LCT3 to Stage World Premiere of Julia Brownell's All-American Off-Broadway
 
The world premiere of Julia Brownell's All-American, a new play exploring the dynamics of the modern American family, will open the 2011-2012 season of Lincoln Center Theater's new works endeavor, LCT3.

Brownell, whose play Smart Cookie was the winner of the 2008 Kendeda Graduate Playwriting Competition and subsequently premiered at the Alliance Theatre in Atlanta, is also a writer for the HBO series "Hung."

Evan Cabnet (The Dream of the Burning Boy) will stage the premiere, which will begin performances Oct. 24 at the Duke on 42nd Street. All-American will officially open Nov. 7 for a run through Nov. 19.

Casting will be announced at a later date.

According to LCT3, "All-American is the story of a modern American family: suburban dad and former NFL star Mike Slattery works hard to make his daughter Katie the new star quarterback at her new school while ignoring her brainy twin brother Aaron. But Katie isn’t sure she wants to keep playing and Mike’s wife Beth isn’t sure she wants to keep playing along."

The production will have set design by Lee Savage, costume design by Jessica Wegener Shay, lighting design by Japhy Weideman and sound design by Jill BC DuBoff. Visit LincolnCenterTheater.

Citing the need to develop strong relationships with new artists and to develop a new audience, and recognizing the frustrations that playwrights have with the current system of readings and workshops, Lincoln Center Theater (under the direction of artistic director Andre Bishop and executive producer Bernard Gersten) created LCT3 to offer new artists fully staged productions. Paige Evans is the director of LCT3.
