‘Water’ for Second Stage

Pulitzer winner to play Off Broadway run

Pulitzer Prize-winning play “Water by the Spoonful” gets is Gotham bow next season at Off Broadway’s Second Stage, which also has skedded a world preem for its 2012-13 slate.

Quaira Alegria Hudes’ “Water” debuted last year at Connecticut’s Hartford Stage and won the Pulitzer for drama earlier this year. Davis McCallum, who directed the Hartford incarnation, also will helm in New York. Cast remain to be announced; the prior staging starred Armando Riesco and Liza Colon-Zayas, among others.

Play by Hudes (“In the Heights”) is the second installment in the scribe’s trilogy that began with “Elliot, A Soldier’s Fugue” and finishes with “The Happiest Song Plays Last,” preeming next season the Chicago’s Goodman Theater. In Gotham, “Water” starts previews in mid-December ahead of opening in early January.

Second Stage’s season will kick off with “Modern Terrorism, or They Who Want to Kill Us and How We Learn to Love Them,” a world preem by Jon Kern. Satire, centering on two terrorists in love and a hipster who gets swept up in their conspiracy, won this year’s Laurents/Hatcher Foundation Award.

Directd by Peter DuBois (“Becky Shaw,” the upcoming “Rapture, Blister, Burn” at Playwrights Horizons), “Modern Terrorism” starts previews in mid-September and will open the following month.

Two more shows remain to be announced for the 2012-13 season at Second Stage. Next up at the company is new tuner “Dogfight,” queued up for a summer run on the troupe’s mainstage, as well as a pair of new titles in the Second Stage Uptown series.
