Play by Labyrinth co-a.d. Stephen Adly Guirgis preemed at Gotham’s Public Theater in 2008. Elephant a.d. David Fofi helms the Bronx-set intergenerational tale. Meanwhile, Labyrinth will stage the world preem of Carlo Alban’s multi-character solo show “Intringulis,” inspired by Alban’s childhood move from Ecuador to the U.S. David Anzuelo directs the production, which will run Nov. 9-Dec. 9. The two shows will be presented in rep at the Lillian Theater.
