Seats for Jack Goes Boating can be obtained by calling (212) 967-7555, online at www.labtheater.org or at the Public Theater Box Office (425 Lafayette Street). Peter DuBois directs the work slated to begin Feb. 27 and open March 18 at the Public Theater's Martinson Hall for a run scheduled through April 8.

The play, which will mark the first time LAB co-artistic directors Ortiz and Hoffman have shared a stage, is described thusly: "Laced with cooking classes, swimming lessons and a smorgasbord of illegal drugs, Jack Goes Boating is a story of date panic, marital meltdown, betrayal and the prevailing grace of the human spirit. "

The design team for Jack Goes Boating will feature David Korins (set), Mimi O'Donnell (costumes), Japhy Wiedeman (lighting) and David Van Tieghem (sound).

The company recently presented its seventh annual free Barn Series Festival — which featured a reading of another Glaudini-DuBois collaboration, A View from 151st Street. Playwright Glaudini also wrote Dutch Heart of Man, which was previously produced by LAByrinth.

The 15th anniversary season of the LAByrinth will continue with Eric Bogosian's This Is Now! penned with musician-composer Elliott Sharp; as well as developmental productions of Carlo Alban's intríngulis and Andrea Ciannavei's Pretty Chin Up.
