Goodman Theater sets slate

World premieres, 'Brigadoon' on 2013-14 docket

World premieres by Rebecca Gilman, Tracey Scott Wilson and Seth Bockley, a revival of tuner “Brigadoon” and a production of Mary Zimmerman’s “The White Snake” are among the titles on tap for the 2013-14 season at Chicago’s Goodman Theater.

As one of the more prominent regional theaters in the country, the company frequently draws the attention of Gotham legiters. This season Goodman did it with a Diane Lane-toplined production of “Sweet Bird of Youth” that was talked about for a possible Rialto transfer, and later this year the company will produce Zimmerman’s staging of “The Jungle Book,” which Disney Theatrical Prods. has its eye on.

Goodman a.d.

Bockley, who wrote the book to Off Broadway alum “February House,” lands at the Goodman with “Ask Aunt Susan” (May 22-June 22, 2014), about a guy who moonlights as an Internet advice guru. “Smokefall” (Oct. 4-Nov. 3, 2013), the play by Noah Haidle about to bow at South Coast Rep, also will play a stint at the Goodman, which teamed with SCR for the title.

Rachel Rockwell directs “Brigadoon” (June 27-Aug. 3, 2014), the 1947 Lerner and Loewe tuner. Also on the docket is “White Snake” (May 3-June 8, 2014), which played at Berkeley Rep this season, as well as Rialto vet “Venus in Fur” (March 8-April 13, 2014) and “Pullman Porter Blues,”(Sept. 14-Oct. 20, 2013).
