Laffer ‘Fuddy Meers’ to close at Minetta

Lindsay-Abaire's next play to give Garofalo debut

David Lindsay-Abaire’s comedy “Fuddy Meers” will close at the Minetta Lane Theatre on April 16.

The play, about an amnesiac and her family, will have played 16 previews and 78 performances at the off-Broadway venue. It originated at the not-for-profit Manhattan Theatre Club’s Stage II, where it opened Nov. 2, 1999, and made its commercial transfer under the auspices of the Manhattan Theatre Club and Jean Doumanian Prods.

“Fuddy Meers” was directed by David Petrarca and stars J. Smith-Cameron.

Garofalo set to bow

Lindsay-Abaire’s next play is an untitled work, which is to star Janeane Garofalo in her New York stage debut. It is expected to open off-Broadway this fall.

The playwright is repped by the Gersh Agency.

“Thunder Knockin’ on the Door,” a blues musical by Keith Glover, Keb’ Mo’ and Anderson Edwards, will follow “Fuddy Meers” into the Minetta Lane, with previews beginning May 12. Mitchell Maxwell produces.
