Writer unveils ‘Secret’ lab

Horovitz launches N.Y. venture

Scribe Israel Horovitz (“Park Your Car in Harvard Yard”) is launching a Gotham producing venture.

The New York Playwrights Lab debuts in the spring with a production of Horovitz’s “The Secret of Mme. Bonnard’s Bath,” about two modern-day art students investigating a mystery pertaining to French impressionist painter Pierre Bonnard. Show will play at Off Broadway’s Theater Row in February and March.

Horovitz founded the Lab in 1975 as a private gathering of playwrights whose members — including Wendy Wasserstein, Kenneth Lonnergan and Warren Leight — critiqued each other’s new work.

For the new producing component of the Lab, Horovitz aims to mix productions of well-known plays that were developed in the Lab with world preems from current members of the group.

Horovitz has two other Gotham productions on his slate before “Bonnard” bows.

His play “Lebensraum,” about a German chancellor who asks 6 million Jews to relocate to Germany in an attempt at Holocaust redemption, will run Dec. 13-30 at the Kirk Theater on Theater Row. T. Ryder Smith stars.

And then in January, an evening of nine short plays by the scribe, “Israel Horovitz’s New Shorts,” runs Jan. 17-Feb. 4 at the 78th Street Theater Lab.
