New audience nabs ‘Cymbeline’

Theater to bring Shakespearean romance to Gotham

The Theater for a New Audience plans to bring its “Cymbeline” to Gotham directly after the production’s world premiere at the Royal Shakespeare Co. in November.

The Shakespearean romance, directed by Bartlett Sher, begins previews in New York in January. Sher, artistic director at the Intiman Theater in Seattle, previously helmed the American premiere of Harley Granville-Barker’s “Waste” at TFANA.

The Bard is followed by Max Frisch’s “Andorra,” directed by Liviu Ciulei, and by the New York City premiere of “The Last Letter,” adapted and directed by docu filmmaker Frederick Wiseman (“Titicut Follies”).

The latter play, based on a chapter from Vasily Grossman’s novel, is a one-woman show about a doctor in a Jewish ghetto who writes a final missive to her son. Last season, Wiseman directed the Comedie-Francaise production of the play.

Jeffrey Horowitz is artistic director at TFANA, which is going into its 23rd season. He did not announce a venue for its three new productions or performance dates for the Frisch and Wiseman/Grossman plays. The company had recently staged its productions at the American Place Theater, which will be undergoing renovations next year in its transfer to the Roundabout Theater Co.
