Lucie Tiberghian will stage the premiere of Belber's Don't Go Gentle, which will run Sept. 27-Nov. 4 at the Lucille Lortel Theatre. Belber is the playwright of Tape, Dusk Rings A Bell and Match.
Here's how it's billed: "Judge Lawrence Driver: conservative powerhouse on the bench, failure at home. Now retired, widowed, and seeking redemption, Lawrence volunteers to do pro bono legal work with Tanya, a vulnerable ex-con with a troubled teenage son, while working to repair the increasingly complicated relationships with his own adult children. But do-overs don’t come easy, and when his newfound generosity is perceived as condescension, Lawrence runs the risk of losing everything."
Colaizzo's Really Really will be staged by Cromer (Tribes, Our Town) Jan. 31-March 10, 2013, at the Lortel. The play received its world premiere at the Signature Theatre in Arlington, VA, in January.
A third production for the 2012-13 season will be announced shortly.
