‘Cymbeline’ back for thirds

Fiasco staging to play Barrow Street

Fiasco Theater’s production of “Cymbeline” has scored its third life, with the small-cast staging set for a run at Off Broadway’s Barrow Street Theater.

Off Broadway nonprofit Theater for a New Audience, which presented the show earlier this year, teams with producers Scott Morfee, Jean Doumanian and Tom Wirtshafter for the commercial run. Morfee, Doumanian and Wirtshafter have an ongoing partnership for producing Off Broadway plays, including “Mistakes Were Made” and the recent revival of “Our Town,” which carved out an unusually long run of more than a year and a half on an economically unforgiving Off Broadway landscape.

Stripped-down production of Shakespeare’s “Cymbeline,” performed by six actors on a nearly bare stage, began life in an Off Off Broadway staging in 2009. Theater for a New Audience a.d. Jeffrey Horowitz picked up the production for a stint at the New Victory Theater in January.

Helmed by Noah Brody and Ben Steinfeld, who also appear in the show’s thesping ensemble, production begins perfs Aug. 27. Current offering at the Barrow Street, a return engagement of Nilaja Sun’s popular solo outing “No Child …,” finishes up its run Aug. 14.
