Newhouse skeds preems

'Third,' 'Bernarda,' 'House' bowing at theater

World-premiere plays by Wendy Wasserstein and Richard Greenberg and a world-premiere tuner by Richard Nelson and Michael John LaChiusa will go up in Lincoln Center’s Off Broadway space, the Mitzi E. Newhouse Theater, during the 2005-06 season.

Wasserstein’s play “Third,” which begins previews Sept. 29 for an Oct. 24 opening, will star Dianne Wiest as a college professor who accuses a student of plagiarism. Charles Durning, Gaby Hoffman, Amy Aquino and Jason Ritter also star. Daniel Sullivan directs. Design team is Thomas Lynch (sets), Jennifer Von Mayrhauser (costumes) and Pat Collins (lights). Original music is by Robert Waldman and Scott Stauffer.

It’s the world premiere of a full-length version of a one-act that went up last year at Theater J in Washington, D.C.

The tuner, “The House of Bernarda Alba,” with music by LaChiusa, book by Nelson, and lyrics by both, is based on the play by Frederico Garcia Lorca. Graciela Daniele directs and choreographs the production, which begins previews Jan. 26 for a Feb. 23 opening. Tuner was developed by Lincoln Center Theater via a series of readings and workshops.

Greenberg’s play “The House in Town,” directed by Doug Hughes, begins previews May 11 and opens June 8. The play reportedly is set in 1929, just before the stock market crash.

All of the writers have worked with LCT before. The company produced Wasserstein’s “The Sisters Rosensweig” and “An American Daughter,” Greenberg’s “Everett Beekin” and Nelson’s “Some Americans Abroad.” The LaChiusa-Daniele team collaborated on LCT’s “Marie Christine,” “Chronicle of a Death Foretold” and “Hello Again.”
