LCT scehdules Fall ’09 line up

Plays from Sarah Ruhl, Thomas Kail on tap

The Broadway debut of scribe Sarah Ruhl and a new play helmed by “In the Heights” director Thomas Kail are on the fall 2009 sked for Lincoln Center Theater.

Ruhl’s “In the Next Room, or The Vibrator Play” will begin previews on Broadway Oct. 22 ahead of a Nov. 19 opening. Production will be helmed by Les Waters, who directed the show’s preem earlier this year at Berkeley Rep (where Waters is associate a.d.). Plot centers on the invention of the vibrator.

Ruhl’s play “The Clean House” played LCT’s Off Broadway space, the Mitzi E. Newhouse Theater, in 2006. “In the Next Room” will bow at a Shubert theater on Broadway to be determined, since Lincoln Center’s Rialto stage is currently occupied by the continuing hit run of “South Pacific.”

At the Newhouse, Kail will helm “Broke-ology,” a new play by Nathan Louis Jackson about two brothers who must return home to care for their father. The show preemed last summer at the Williamstown Theater Fest, in a production also directed by Kail.

“Broke-ology” begins Off Broadway perfs Sept. 10 before opening Oct. 5.

A fall offering at LCT3, Lincoln Center’s newest and smallest space, remains to be determined.
