Concert is part of a slate that includes an October slot for “The Wolves in the Walls,” a National Theater of Scotland production based on the book by Neil Gaiman and Dave McKean and co-directed by Julian Crouch, whose “Shockheaded Peter” played at the New Vic in 2000 before going on to a commercial Off Broadway run.

Other offerings of the season include an adaptation of “Rapunzel” from the UK’s Kneehigh Theater, a holiday production from the Chinese troupe Golden Dragon Acrobats, a slam poetry show from New Jersey’s Mayhem Poets, and the Gotham debut of Chicago dance troupe Luna Negra Dance Theater.
