MTC goes Off B’way for new, B’way for old

It’s revivals on Broadway and new plays Off Broadway for the Manhattan Theater Club.

The nonprofit theater company has announced half of its 2005-06 season.

Cynthia Nixon headlines “Talley’s Folly” at the Biltmore Theater, MTC’s Broadway venue. Lanford Wilson’s two-hander about unlikely lovers also features Matt Friedman. It is skedded for this fall. Doug Hughes (“Doubt”) directs.

“Absurd Person Singular” follows “Talley’s Folly” at the Biltmore. Alan Ayckbourn’s marital comedy takes place over three successive Christmas Eves. Lynne Meadow (“The Tale of the Allergist’s Wife”) directs.

MTC’s Off Broadway space at City Center will house the world premiere of David Lindsay-Abaire’s “Rabbit Hole,” about a marriage in the aftermath of a tragic accident. Daniel Sullivan (“Brooklyn Boy”) directs.

Nilo Cruz’s “Beauty of the Father” also goes into the City Center space. A father, his daughter and a Moroccan suitor make for an intriguing triangle. Michael Greif (“Rent”) directs Cruz’s follow-up to his Pulitzer Prize winner, “Anna in the Tropics.” “Beauty of the Father” was first staged at the New Theater in Coral Gables, Fla.

Other MTC productions are to be announced.
