Neil Patrick Harris on Menier slate

Churchill, 'Invisible Man' also on winter lineup

A U.K. incarnation of a site-specific legit outing produced by Neil Patrick Harris, plus the first London revival of Caryl Churchill’s “A Number” — with father-and-son actors Timothy and Samuel West playing father and son — are among the shows on tap as part of the 2010 winter season at London’s Menier Chocolate Factory.

Jonathan Munby, whose production of “The Prince of Homburg” is on the boards at the Donmar Warehouse, helms the Churchill play based on his regional premiere production at Sheffield’s Crucible Theater in 2006. Designed by Paul Wills with lighting by Oliver Fenwick, the play runs Sept. 29-Nov. 5 with an Oct. 4 opening.

Menier a.d. David Babani also announced the European preem of New York and L.A. site-specific hit “Accomplice,” to be produced by Chocolate Factory Prods., Tom Salamon and Harris. The roving theater-game hybrid opens Sept. 4.

Final production of the winter season will be a revival of Ken Hill’s H.G. Wells adaptation, “The Invisible Man,” helmed by Ian Talbot (Nov. 12-Feb. 13).

The Chocolate Factory is resenting five productions: “Aspects of Love” at the Menier, “Sweet Charity” and “Educating Rita”/”Shirley Valentine” in the West End and “A Little Night Music” and “La Cage aux Folles” in Gotham.
