Vineyard takes it ‘Outside’

Company co-producing with Naked Angels

The Vineyard Theater will team with fellow Off Broadway troupe Naked Angels to co-produce “Outside People,” the Zayd Dohrn play that was already announced as part of the 2011-12 Naked Angels slate.

The co-production will be staged at the Vineyard for a winter run that opens in January. Evan Cabnet (“The Dream of the Burning Boy”) helms the world preem, which centers on a young American in Beijing who falls in love with a Chinese woman.

Co-productions have become increasingly common on the Off Broadway landscape, as some troupes grapple with funding obstacles including a decline in government coin. Earlier this spring, one of Naked Angels’ skedded productions was canceled after a funder dropped out.

Last season Signature Theater and the Public co-produced the Gotham bow of Tony Kushner’s “The Intelligent Homosexual’s Guide to Capitalism and Socialism,” and one of the Vineyard’s past hits, Tony winner “Avenue Q,” was a co-production with the New Group.

Also at the Vineyard, longtime staffer Jennifer Garvey-Blackwell has been upped from exec director to a new leadership position, exec producer. Rebecca Habel, who was general manager at the Vineyard from 2003 until 2005, has been tapped as the org’s new managing director.

The Vineyard’s 2011-12 season includes “The Lyons,” a new Nicky Silver play to be toplined by Linda Lavin, as well as a developmental production of a new tuner from John Kander, “Andra.”
