The Culture Project and The Lincoln Center Theatre Directors Lab have joined forces to present The Brothers Karamazov in a serialized adaptation, Jan. 14-March 8.
Dostoevsky's epic novel has been adapted for the stage by the LCT Directors Lab, and will be presented in six rotating episodes comprising 10 segments, for a total of 36 performances over six weeks.
Ralph Lewis, one of the directors in the Lab, told Playbill On-Line (Jan. 12), "One of the great things about the Lab is that you get a chance to do things, that you wouldn't normally be able to do. My section has a huge cast and 11 dancers and tons of things I wouldn't be able to do with my own theatre company."
The project was formed to showcase the talents of ten emerging directors from the LCT Directors Lab. Each director has adapted a section of the book, bringing their personal perspective and aesthetics to the story.
Cast members in the shows include Robert Croker, Lincoln Douglas, Jordan Foster, Rio Glenn, Joe Holt, John Lewis, Carlos Linares, California Littlefield, Sara Kay Rinde, Daniel J. Smith and Harry Wyatt. The Culture Project and the LCT Directors Lab have previously collaborated on The 20th Century Project, A Strindberg Salon, and Women and the Avant-Garde.
All six episodes will be presented at The Salon on 432 East 91st Street, for ticket information call (212) 426-5800.
