The Off-Broadway troupe will present the new works by playwrights (and members of MCC's Playwrights’ Coalition) March 8, 22 and April 5 at the Baruch Performing Arts Center.
The Monday night series offers a "special opportunity to experience works in development," according to an announcement. Audience members are also invited to mingle with the artists at each show's post-performance reception.
The 2010 spring PlayLab Readings lineup:
"Rudy was just an ordinary flight instructor in the Florida Keys, teaching people how to fly planes. But hi marriage, his family, and everything dear to him are threatened when an unexpected burst of media attention begins to turn an uneasy nation against him." Josh Hecht directs.
"In this hilarious imagining of The Day Britney Shaved Her Head, the pop diva (fresh from rehab) screams, rages, drinks, drugs, viciously lashes out, and generally runs riot through the whole world that created her and carelessly tossed her aside." Evan Cabnet directs.
April 5: See You Later by Alex Lewin
"Since College days, Tom and Andrew have successfully navigated the dangerous twists and turns that twenty years of friendship can bring. But after all this time of growing together, they may be realizing an opposite and sad truth: just how far they have drifted apart." Casting and a director for the April 5 reading are yet to be announced.
To attend the 7 PM readings at the Baruch Performing Arts Center, 25th St. (between Lexington and Third Avenue), call (212) 727-7722 ext. 244. For more information, visit mcctheater.org.
