Gurney’s new Horizons

Weaver goes 'Crazy'

Sigourney Weaver will again team up with scribe A.R. Gurney for “Crazy Mary,” slated to preem at Playwrights Horizons in May 2007.

Thesp performed in Gurney’s comedy “Mrs. Farnsworth” in a successful production at the Flea in 2004. That show was helmed, as “Crazy Mary” will be, by Flea a.d. (and Weaver’s husband) Jim Simpson.

Weaver plays a society matron who, with a sizable inheritance at stake, takes her college-age son to visit their long-lost cousin in an asylum.

Playwrights also has tapped Leigh Silverman (“Well”) to direct Tanya Barfield’s “Blue Door,” about a black mathematician tormented by his ancestors’ ghosts, and Joe Calarco will helm “Floyd and Clea Under the Western Sky,” David Cale and Jonathan Kreisberg’s tuner about a has-been country music star and the 20-year-old woman who joins up with him.
