Schmoll on a Roll

Director Ken Russ Schmoll, who helmed Ann Marie Healy's new LCT3 play, What Once We Felt, has signed up for the U.S. premiere of Wolfgang Rihm's new opera, Proserpina at the Spoleto Festival in Charleston in May.

But, first, he's planning to helm a play for 13P, the downtown playwriting organization. It's a two-hander by Madeleine George about a lesbian couple, called The Zero Hour. It's not to be confused with the Zero Hour at Theatre at Saint Clement's (Jim Brochu's one-man show on Zero Mostel) or the "Zero Hour!" that Arthur ("Airport") Hailey wrote for TV and movies (ptomaine poisoning knocks out the cockpit of a commercial airliner, forcing war-torn passenger Dana Andrews back to the controls — ah, the good old days when airlines still served meals!).
