Playwright Lucas' Reckless — originally produced in 1983 — involves a suburban wife who lives in bliss until one Christmas Eve when a hitman, hired by her hubby, makes an attempt on her life. The Second Stage staging was to begin under the direction of Brokaw (Lobby Hero, Marty) April 1. Second Stage currently presents Michael John LaChiusa's Little Fish. Following that will be Tony Award-winning director Mary Zimmerman's The Notebooks of Leonardo da Vinci. The production will mark the return to the Off-Broadway venue for the Chicago-based helmer whose production of Metamorphoses began at Second Stage before transferring to Broadway.
Second Stage subscribers are being offered tickets to the upcoming Broadway production of The Play What I Wrote in lieu of the Lucas work.
