"City Theatre celebrates its 40th anniversary season by welcoming back three extraordinary playwrights who are at the peak of their powers," said Tracy Brigden, artistic director of City Theatre, in a statement.
The company's full six-play season, as well as dates and additional details, will be announced at a later date.
The world premiere of Holtzman's Holliday With Mulligan is commissioned by City Theatre. Here's how it's billed: "New York City, 1964. The tape is rolling when Born Yesterday star Judy Holliday lays down a series of impressionistic tracks about her rise to fame amidst the politics of the 1950s. Memory and song converge as the 'dumb blonde' with a genius IQ charts her experiences from Greenwich Village to Broadway and beyond with notable show business alums, including Leonard Bernstein, Marilyn Monroe, and Gerry Mulligan."
Midsummer is described as a play with songs by Greig that features the music of McIntyre. Here's how it's described: "Midsummer in Edinburgh turns into a weekend of wild abandon when divorce lawyer Helena meets small-time crook Bob in a cellar wine bar. With a wad of ill-gotten cash in hand and a local gangster on their heels, the unlikely pair goes on an alcohol- and adventure-filled romp, discovering that there are second chances at life — and love."
Additionally, the company will present The Pajama Men, created and performed by Shenoah Allen and Mark Chavez, Aug. 27-Sept. 7.
