MTC offers ‘Mauritius,’ ‘Top Girls’

'Receptionist,' 'Pumpgirl' set for Off Broadway

Theresa Rebeck’s “Mauritius” and a production of Caryl Churchill’s “Top Girls” will be among the Broadway offerings that will play the Manhattan Theater Club’s Biltmore Theater next season.

In a partial announcement of its 2007-08 season, MTC also confirmed productions of Adam Bock’s “The Receptionist” and Abbie Spallen’s “Pumpgirl” for its Off Broadway slate.

The latest from Rebeck (“The Scene”) follows two half-sisters who inherit a rare stamp collection. Rebeck makes her Broadway debut with the show, a co-production with Boston’s Huntington Theater, where the play preemed last year.

Churchill’s “Top Girls,” which ran at the Public in 1982, will play the Rialto for the first time. Production will be directed by James MacDonald (“Dying City,” “A Number”).

Bock’s “Receptionist” not only has a director attached — Joe Mantello (“Wicked”), who helmed MTC’s current critical hit, “Blackbird” — but also a lead thesp in Jane Houdyshell (“Well”).

That’ll be the second major Off Broadway production of a play by Bock (“The Thugs”) next season: His play “The Drunken City” is set for Playwrights Horizons.

Fourth announced offering, “Pumpgirl” by Irish scribe Spallen, follows a tomboyish gas station attendant who becomes obsessed with a local racetrack star.

Dates, casting, specific Off Broadway venues and other details — along with the three additional entries that will round out the nonprofit’s seven-play season — will be announced at a later date.

During the 2007-08 season, helmer Daniel Sullivan serves as acting a.d. of MTC while the theater’s longtime head, Lynne Meadow, takes a year-long sabbatical. Both Sullivan and Meadow were involved in programming decisions.
