A helming gig for Philip Seymour Hoffman and a new play by Stephen Adly Guirgis are among the shows lined up for the 2012-13 season from Off Broadway’s Labyrinth Theater Company.
Hoffman, one of the founding artistic directors of the 20-year-old troupe, will helm “A Family for all Occasions,” the latest play Bob Glaudini. Show, targeting a spring 2013 run, centers on a man who feels underappreciated by his family but discovers a seeming kinship with his daughter’s suitor.
Hoffman appeared in Labyrinth’s world preem of Glaudini’s 2007 play “Jack Goes Boating,” and went on to star in the 2010 movie adaptation.
Guirgis (“The Motherfucker with the Hat”), currently a co-a.d. of Labyrinth, will pen a new play for the season, with details including title and subject matter still to be announced. Show will get a summer 2013 slot.
Season kicks off with “Radiance” by Cusi Cram (“The Big C”), about an occurrence at a 1950s bar in Hollywood that resonates over the next ten years. Suzanne Agins (“Jailbait”) helms the production, with fall dates still to be locked in.
All three shows will run at Off Broadway’s Bank Street Theater in downtown Gotham.
