Burning Blue, a play examining gays in the U.S. military, will have its New York premiere in fall 1999 in an Off-Broadway staging produced by Brent Peek and George DeMarco, Variety reported. D.M.W. Greer's drama about two navy fighter pilots who fall in love -- and the fallout afterward -- was staged in London in 1995 and in Los Angeles in 1998.
Variety reported Peek is seeking an Off-Broadway house for the play and that John Hickok, who helmed in London and L.A., would direct in New York.
Details are still being worked out, according to the article. Playbill On- Line could not confirm the information at press time.
