The Menier Chocolate Factory, which first produced the revival of “Sunday in the Park with George” that the Roundabout will present this spring, has tapped “La Cage aux Folles” for its Christmas slot. Terry Johnson will helm the 1983 Jerry Herman-Harvey Fierstein musical comedy about two male lovers and their son’s impending marriage. Production begins perfs Nov. 23 ahead of a Dec. 3 press opening.
Meanwhile, the slate for the Tricycle Theater, which presented the production of “The 39 Steps” expected to play Broadway this season, includes the Brit preem of John Patrick Shanley’s Pulitzer-winner “Doubt,” directed by Nicholas Kent in an engagement that runs Nov. 22-Jan. 12.
Also on the bill are Ron Hutchinson’s “Moonlight and Magnolias” (Sept. 27-Nov. 3), a transfer of Edinburgh Fringe Fest offering “The Table” from Poland’s Karbido Crew (Nov. 5-14), and two new plays produced by the Royal Shakespeare Company at the Tricycle, Leo Butler’s “I’ll be the Devil” (Feb. 18-March 8, 2008) and Roy Williams’ “Days of Significance” (March 10-29).
