MCC to build LaBute’s new ‘House’

Show skedded for final slot next year

Off Broadway’s MCC Theater, currently doing strong biz with Neil LaBute’s “Some Girl(s),” has another LaBute play in the works for the same slot next year: “In a Dark, Dark House” will be the final show on the theater’s 2006-07 slate.

No word yet on who will direct or star in the show, which centers on a complicated father-son relationship. Jo Bonney directed both “Some Girl(s),” which runs through July 8 at the Lortel, and “Fat Pig,” another LaBute play, for MCC.

LaBute recently was named MCC’s playwright in residence. “In a Dark, Dark House” has its world preem May 16.

First production of the MCC season will be the reunion revival of “Nixon’s Nixon,” Russell Lees’ satire about a meeting between Richard Nixon and Henry Kissinger, which the theater first produced in 1995. Jim Simpson will once again direct, and Gerry Bamman and Steve Mellor will reprise their roles as Nixon and Kissinger, respectively.

A third play, which will bow in January, has yet to be announced.
