Creatives set for Cherry Lane

Off Broadway company sets slate

Theresa Rebeck, Judith Ivey and Pablo Picasso are among the creatives repped in the upcoming slate at Off Broadway’s Cherry Lane Theater.

Scribe Rebeck (“Mauritius”) joins the season as an artist-in-residence, which includes a commission by the Cherry Lane for a play that will later be produced. She’ll also serve in the theater’s Mentor program in 2010.

Ivey will appear in David Rambo’s “The Lady With All the Answers,” running in October in a production helmed by B.J. Jones. Last spring the actress appeared at the Cherry Lane in an Edward Albee double bill.

The Mentor Project kicks off with “Housebreaking” by Jakob Holder, getting a short run beginning in March. Daniella Topol helms and Charles Mee serves as mentor.

The theater also will present prior Mentor Project finalists in full productions as part of its Discovery Series. A 2008 offering, “Jailbait,” penned by Deirdre O’Connor and directed by Suzanne Agins, will have a run in the spring, while a 2006 entry, Sheila Callaghan’s “Lascivious Something,” gets a production in August helmed by Topol.

A play by Picasso, “Caught by the Tail,” is on tap for 2010. The abstract show was originally produced at the Cherry Lane in 1952, and will be revived as part of its Heritage Series.

The 2010-11 season also will see productions of new works by Charles Fuller and Anton Dudley, both commissioned by the theater.
