Cherry picks up Albee plays

Theater sets set of one-acts

A pair of early one-acts by Edward Albee are on the 2007-08 slate at Off Broadway’s Cherry Lane Theater — and Albee is tentatively set to direct them.

Also on the sked at the 80-year-old theater is “Hoodoo Love,” the play by Katori Hall that was part of the company’s Mentor Project in 2006.

Two Albee plays, “The American Dream” and “The Sandbox,” preemed separately at the Cherry Lane in the early 1960s. They’ll be revived there on a double bill that begins previews March 4 and opens March 18.

Albee, whose busy Gotham season includes “Peter and Jerry” at Second Stage in the fall and “Occupant” at Signature in the spring, will helm “Dream” and “Sandbox” unless a scheduling conflict arises.

“Hoodoo Love,” directed by Lucie Tiberghien, follows a Mississippi woman who flees the cotton fields to become a blues singer. Show begins perfs Oct. 16 for an Oct. 29 opening.

Also on the Cherry Lane’s plate is the 10th anni season of the Mentor Project, with scribes Michael Weller, Charles Fuller and Jules Feiffer on board to mentor playwrights still to be selected.
