SOUTHBURY, Conn. — “Adult Entertainment,” a new comedy by Elaine May that may or may not have the subtitle “No One Under 17 Admitted” when it surfaces, is scheduled to have its pre-New York premiere in Stamford, Conn., Oct. 31 to Nov. 10. Potential opening is Nov. 3.
The production will play in the Stamford Center for the Arts’ Rich Forum’s 750-seat Truglia Theater.
Directed by Stanley Donen and with Danny Aiello and Jeannie Berlin heading its cast, production is being presented by the producers of last season’s limited Broadway run of Mike Poulton’s adaptation of Turgenev’s “Fortune’s Fool,” starring Alan Bates and Frank Langella.
That production also tried out in Rich Forum’s Truglia Theater prior to New York.
The “Fortune’s Fool” producers were Julian Schlossberg, Roy Furman, Ben Sprecher, Ted Tulchin, Aaron Levy, Peter May, Bob Boyett and James Fantaci.
The Gotham plans for “Adult Entertainment” have not been firmed.
