Snicket and Moreno play at Berkeley Rep.

Lemony Snicket and Rita Moreno on tap in 2010-2011

A musical offering from Lemony Snicket and a world preem starring Rita Moreno are among the offerings on tap for the 2010-11 season at Berkeley Rep.

Snicket’s “The Composer Is Dead” (Nov. 26-Jan. 9), with music by Nathaniel Stookey, is based on the book and CD set released last year. Helmed by Berkeley Rep a.d. Tony Taccone, the show is a mystery set in an orchestra.

Taccone also penned the new, untitled show for Moreno, set to run next May 13-June 12.

Also on the bill are Oskar Eustis’ staging of Rinne Groff’s “Compulsion” (Sept. 10-Oct. 24), seen earlier this season at Yale Rep; Sarah Ruhl’s translation of “The Three Sisters,” helmed by Les Waters (“In the Next Room, or the Vibrator Play”); and Pulitzer winner “Ruined.”

Two Mike Daisy monologues, “The Last Cargo Cult” and “The Agony and the Ecstasy of Steve Jobs” (Jan. 14-Feb. 27) and a multiplay, multiscribe look at Afghanistan, “The Great Game: Afghanistan” (Oct. 22-Nov. 7), round out the season.

Berkeley Rep has yielded a handful of Broadway stagings this season, including “The Vibrator Play,” Carrie Fisher’s “Wishful Drinking” and the upcoming Green Day tuner “American Idiot.”
