LCT invites ‘Nikolai’

New Nelson play set for Off Broadway run

The latest play by Richard Nelson, “Nikolai and the Others,” will close the Off Broadway season at Lincoln Center Theater, where the title will debut in a production helmed by David Cromer.

The newest by Nelson (“The Dead”), whose plays “Some Americans Abroad” and “Two Shakespearean Actors” were both produced by LCT, centers on a 1948 gathering in Connecticut of a handful of artsy Russian expats, including choreographer George Balanchine, painter and set designer Sergey Sudeikin and composers Igor Stravinsky and Nikolai Nabokov.

Cromer (“Our Town”), whose production of “Sweet Bird of Youth” is currently playing at Chicago’s Goodman Theater, previously worked on LCT’s Off Broadway stage with the 2010 production of “When the Rain Stops Falling.”

LCT’s 2012-13 lineup of shows in the Mitzi E. Newhouse Theater, the org’s Off Broadway venue, kicks off this fall with Christopher Durang’s “Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike.”

Casting and other details remain to be announced for “Nikolai and the Others,” which begins previews April 4 ahead of a May 6 opening.
