'Awake,' 'History Boys' make way to B'way

Lincoln Center Theater will revive “Awake and Sing,” Clifford Odets’ 1935 play about a Jewish family in the Bronx, at the Belasco Theater. Show, skedded for an April 17 opening, reunites helmer Bartlett Sher, set designer Michael Yeargan, costume designer Catherine Zuber and lighting designer Christopher Akerlind — the creative team on last season’s big winner at the Tonys, “The Light in the Piazza.”

The Broadhurst, former home of the defunct “Lennon,” will house the transfer of the much-praised National Theater production of “The History Boys.” Helmed by Nicholas Hytner, the Alan Bennett play, about British high school students vying for entrance to Oxbridge-caliber universities, will open April 23.

Off Broadway, “Orson’s Shadow” will shutter Dec. 31 after 349 perfs. The show, about the backstage drama behind Orson Welles’ 1960 production of Ionesco’s “Rhinoceros,” hasn’t yet recouped its $250,000 capitalization, but there are hopes it will do so as year-end biz picks up.
