‘Chronicles’ set for Fourth Street

Silverman to direct Bannon's 'Brinker' novels

Ann Bannon’s lesbian pulp novels about adventuress Beebo Brinker are coming to the Fourth Street Theater. The Hourglass group will produce a stage adaptation of three of the books under the title “The Beebo Brinker Chronicles.”

Leigh Silverman, who helmed Broadway’s “Well,” will direct; the cast includes Carolyn Baeumler, Autumn Dornfeld, Marin Ireland, Anna Foss Wilson and Obie winner David Greenspan. Production opens Oct. 1 following previews beginning Sept. 27.

Bannon’s seven-book series was published between 1957 and 1962 by Gold Medal Books. The author is slated to take part in a talkback session after the Sept. 30 preview.

Set in pre-Stonewall Greenwich Village, the play follows former secret college lovers who become entangled with a butch denizen of the New York bar scene.
