‘Dancin” returns to Roundabout schedule

Plays by Karam, Osborne also on 2011-12 slate

The postponed revival of dance-ical “Bob Fosse’s Dancin'” and Off Broadway stagings of plays by Stephen Karam and John Osborne have claimed slots in the 2011-12 season at the Roundabout Theater Company.

The Gotham nonprofit’s production of terp tribute “Dancin’,” which will re-create Fosse’s original choreography from the 1978 original, had initially been skedded for the 2008-09 season but was bumped for a revival of “Waiting for Godot” starring Nathan Lane and Bill Irwin.

Previously announced helmer Graciela Daniele remains attached, with Fosse’s daughter, Nicole, on board as a creative consultant. Production will occupy a fall slot at Studio 54, one of the Roundabout’s three Broadway venues.

Off Broadway staging of Karam’s “Sons of the Prophet,” playing the Laura Pels Theater at the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theater, reps a step up for the scribe, whose breakout play “Speech and Debate” preemed at the Roundabout’s smaller black-box venue.

New play, commissioned by the Roundabout and helmed by Huntington Theater a.d. Peter DuBois, centers on a Lebanese family living in Pennsylvania. Skedded for the Pels in the fall, “Sons” is produced by the Roundabout in association with Boston’s Huntington, where the show will bow in April.

Also in the Pels, Sam Gold has signed on to helm Osborne’s 1956 play “Look Back in Anger,” the angry-young-man play set in 1950s England. Project reps an unusual one for Gold, who is currently better known for helming new work including the Roundabout’s “Tigers Be Still.”

A number of entries in the Roundabout’s 2011-12 season remain to be announced.
