‘Life,’ ‘Bete’ snag Main Stem venues

Broadway fall season coming into focus

Details of Broadway’s fall season continue to fall into place, with “A Life in the Theater” taking the Gerald Schoenfeld Theater and “La Bete” landing at the Music Box.

The staging of David Mamet’s “Life” will kick off previews Sept. 17 (with an opening date to be announced), while David Hirson’s “Bete” begins previews Sept. 23 ahead of an Oct. 14 opening.

“Life” also announced a design team that includes Santo Loquasto (set), Kenneth Posner (lights) and Laura Bauer (costumes). Toplined by Patrick Stewart and helmed by Neil Pepe, “Life” will follow “A Behanding in Spokane,” which ends its limited run June 6, into the Schoenfeld.

“La Bete” — starring David Hyde Pierce, Mark Rylance and Joanna Lumley and directed by Matthew Warchus — takes over the Music Box from “Lend Me a Tenor,” scheduled to play through Aug. 15.
