News   "Sesame Street" Alum and Stage Actor Goes Solo in Intríngulis March 26
 
Carlo Alban stars in the LAByrinth Theater Company's world-premiere developmental production of Intríngulis, which begins performances March 26. The actor also penned the new work.

David Anzuelo directs the solo show scheduled to play five performances through April 9 at The Public Theater's Martinson Hall.

Alban inhabits a whole neighborhood of people in his solo piece: "Novelist, sniper, television personality, delinquent youth. Window washer, tourist, Beelzebub, idealist youth. Vigilante, rock star wannabe, minuteman, apolitical youth. Illegal immigrant." This previous Barn Series work — which centers around "the story of Carlo's family and their move from Ecuador to the United States when Carlo was seven" — now undergoes a developmental production.

As an actor, Alban was seen in LAByrinth runs of Jose Rivera's References to Salvador Dali Make Me Hot, John Patrick Shanley's A Winter's Party and Stephen Belber's A Small Melodramatic Story. He is known for his six-year stint on the television show "Sesame Street." Other credits for the LAB company member include "Strangers with Candy," "21 Grams," "Law & Order," "Touched by an Angel" and "Thicker than Blood."

LAB currently presents the world premiere of Bob Glaudini's Jack Goes Boating (extended through April 29). Peter DuBois directs a cast that includes Philip Seymour Hoffman, Daphne Rubin-Vega, John Ortiz and Beth Cole. The troupe's 15th anniversary season will continue with Eric Bogosian's This Is Now! (penned with musician-composer Elliott Sharp) as well as a developmental production of Andrea Ciannavei's Pretty Chin Up.

Tickets ($25) are available for Intríngulis at the Public Theater, 425 Lafayette Street, by calling (212) 967-7555. For more information visit labtheater.org.
