NY Theatre Workshop to Stage Peter and the Starcatchers, Three Pianos and The Little Foxes

News   NY Theatre Workshop to Stage Peter and the Starcatchers, Three Pianos and The Little Foxes Roger Rees and Alex Timbers will direct Rick Elice's Peter and the Starcatchers as part of the New York Theatre Workshop's 2010-2011 season, which will also include the Schubert-inspired Three Pianos.

As previously reported, Elizabeth Marvel will star in Lillian Hellman's The Little Foxes, which is the first production of the season, running September-October. Flemish director Ivo Van Hove, who staged Opening Night at BAM and Eugene O'Neill's More Stately Mansions for NYTW, will helm the classic. Following will be Peter and the Starcatchers penned by Jersey Boys and Addams Family writer Elice, based on the novel by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson. Tony winner Rees (Nicholas Nickleby) and Timbers (Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson) will co-direct the work that will utilize 12 actors to portray 50 characters in the tale of the boy who wouldn't grow up.

Franz Schubert's Winterreise song cycle serves as the basis for Three Pianos, written, arranged and performed by Rick Burkhardt, Alec Duffy and Dave Malloy. Rachel Chavkin will direct the work that follows three friends (each on a piano) who take the audience on a journey through their love for the Schubert work on a snowy evening in a rustic cabin. Dates of production will be announced shortly.
