‘Whipping Man’ gets Off Broadway run

'Doubt' director to helm Civil War play

Manhattan Theater Club has lined up the Gotham preem of “The Whipping Man” for a winter slot in its 2010-11 Off Broadway season.

Doug Hughes (“Doubt”) will helm Matthew Lopez’s play. Set just after the Civil War, storyline centers on a Jewish Confederate soldier, recently returned from the battlefield, and a pair of former slaves who were raised Jewish in his family home.

“Whipping Man” preemed at Luna Stage in Montclair, N.J. in 2006, and has since been seen at the Old Globe in San Diego and at Barrington Stage in Massachusetts.

The play joins an MTC season that includes Broadway offerings “The Pitmen Painters” and “Good People” (the latest by David Lindsay-Abaire), along with Off Broadway shows including Beau Willimon’s “Spirit Control.” One more Broadway production remains to be added to the 2010-11 sked.

“Whipping Man” beings previews Jan. 13 ahead of a Feb. 1 opening at MTC’s City Center Stage I.
