Sundance lab slates tuners

Creatives will develop shows Dec. 5-17 at White Oak

A musical about a Viennese love affair and a docu tuner starring a friendly alien make up the just-announced slate for the Sundance Institute Theater Lab at White Oak, the Florida offshoot of Sundance’s theater development program.

Set in Vienna in 1914, “Doll” follows the romance between Alma Mahler and painter Oskar Kokoschka. It’s a second visit to Sundance for lyricist-book writer Michael Korie and composer Scott Frankel; their first, “Grey Gardens,” with a book penned by Doug Wright, will bow at Playwrights Horizons in February. “Doll” will be directed by Lonny Price.

“Nobody’s Lunch,” by downtown Gotham troupe the Civilians, offers a look at paranoia and information control in American culture. Script is culled from a series of interviews, including one with a medium who claims to channel an extraterrestrial intelligence. “Lunch” had a run at P.S. 122 last fall.

Creatives will develop their shows Dec. 5-17 at White Oak, a 7,500-acre property in Yulee that is also home to the Baryshnikov Dance Studio.
