The season will kick off Jan. 12, 2013, with As You Like It, presented by The Acting Company in association with the Guthrie. Running through Feb. 3, the production will be directed by Dan Rothenberg.
The Pillsbury House Theatre production of Tracey Scott Wilson's Buzzer will follow, running Feb. 8-March 3. Directed by Marion McClinton, the play, according to press notes, explores "race in America through the prism of three young people living together in a neighborhood in the process of gentrification."
The Guthrie will then present Mu Performing Arts' production of R.A. Shiomi’s Yellow Fever, directed by Rick Shiomi. The comedic mystery, which runs March 8-24, "takes place in the Japanese community of Vancouver and tells the story of a private investigator trapped in a web of politics and race while searching for the mysterious Cherry Blossom Queen."
Finishing the 2012-13 season in the Dowling Studio will be An Iliad, running May 4-26. This one-performer interpretation of the classical story by Homer features an adaptation by Lisa Peterson and Denis O’Hare, translated by Robert Fagles and directed by Benjamin McGovern. Stephen Yoakam will star.
