In addition to the officially announced revivals of Pal Joey and Dancin' at Broadway's Studio 54, the resident not-for-profit is expected to stage the following (although these are listed as plays under consideration):
Robert Bolt's A Man for All Seasons, the drama about Sir Thomas More, a devout Catholic and a loyal subject of King Henry VIII, directed by Doug Hughes (A Touch of the Poet, Naked Girl, Doubt) at the American Airlines Theatre in fall 2008.
Streamers, David Rabe's Vietnam-era drama of four soldiers awaiting orders in 1965, directed by Scott Ellis (Twelve Angry Men) at Off-Broadway's Laura Pels in fall 2008. (Ellis staged the play for Boston's Huntington Theatre Company in fall 2007, and helmed a free New York City reading of it for Roundabout Theatre Company subscribers at the American Airlines Theatre in 2007.)
The New York premiere of Distracted, Lisa Loomer's drama of a mom dealing with her child's learning disability, directed by Mark Brokaw (Cry-Baby) at the Laura Pels in winter 2008-09.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
