Donmar unveils 2011 season

'Spelling Bee,' 'Luise Miller' among highlights

LONDON — The European premiere of Tony-winning tuner “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee,” a new adaptation of Friedrich Schiller’s 19th-century thriller “Luise Miller” and the first London revival of Pinter’s “Moonlight” are the highlights of the 2011 Donmar Warehouse season announced Friday.

Jamie Lloyd, currently rehearsing the Donmar’s forthcoming production of Sondheim’s “Passion,” will helm William Finn and Rachel Sheinkin’s tuner. Christopher Oram and Neil Austin, both 2010 Tony-winners for the Donmar/Arielle Tepper Madover “Red” will design and light the show, which runs Feb. 11-Apr. 2 with a Feb. 21 opening.

Pinter’s 1993 tragicomedy “Moonlight,” helmed by National Theater associate director Bijan Sheibani, designed by Bunny Christie and lit by Jon Clark, plays April 7-May 28 with an April 12 opening.

Donmar a.d. Michael Grandage’s production of “Luise Miller” reunites him with translator Mike Poulton. Their previous Schiller collaboration “Don Carlos” was a West End critical and box-office smash. The play, best known as an opera by Verdi, runs June 8-July 30. Felicity Jones (“The Chalk Garden”) plays the title role.
