The VagaBOND (sic) Theatre Company of New York will present a revival of Richard Greenberg's The Extra Man Dec. 3-20 at Theatre Row's Samuel Beckett Theatre (410 W. 42nd St.).
The Extra Man concerns Keith, a writer with spurious intentions and too much time on his hands, who constructs a disastrous love triangle among his friends. The original production, at Manhattan Theatre Club, starred Laila Robins, Adam Arkin, John Slattery, and Boyd Gaines.
Kent Paul will director the VagaBOND revival. Glynnis O'Connor, Michael Janes, Charles Clough and Ernie Dunn star.
O'Connor may be familiar to film viewers. She achieved fame in the early '70s starring in such teen flicks as "Ode to Billy Joe" and "Jeremy," often opposite Robby Benson. Later on, she appeared in "Those Lips, Those Eyes," opposite Frank Langella and Tom Hulce. She may be best known, however, for her role in the television movie "The Boy in the Plastic Bubble" starring John Travolta. She has rarely taken roles on the stage.
VagaBOND is also presenting its second annual Ten Minute Play Festival on Nov. 7, noon to 6 PM, at the Swing 46 Jazz and Supper Club (349 W. 46th St.). For information on these events, call (212) 802-7977.
