‘Captors’ eyes New York

Cristofer to star in Huntington show

Michael Cristofer will star as Adolf Eichmann in a Huntington Theater production of a new play that has an eye on a future life in New York.

Evan M. Wiener, who penned 2010 indie film “Monogamy,” wrote the play. Huntington a.d. Peter DuBois (“Becky Shaw”) helms a two-thesp cast that also includes Louis Cancelmi (“This,” “Blasted”) as Mossad agent Peter Z. Malkin.

“Captors,” based on 1990 memoir “Eichmann in My Hands” by Malkin and Harry Stein, is set in Buenos Aires in 1960, with Holocaust mastermind Eichmann in custody and Malkin struggling to persuade the war criminal to agree to stand trial.

Design team includes set designer Beowulf Boritt (“The Scottsboro Boys”), costume designer Bobby Frederick Tilley II (“Sons of the Prophet”) and lighting designer Russell Champa (“In the Next Room, or the Vibrator Play”).

Commercial producers attached to the projects are Michael Weinberger, Jeff Mandel, Tom Heller and the Kostman Family. Mandel and Heller previously collaborated with scribe Wiener on “Monogamy,” the Chris Messina starrer that preemed at the Tribeca Film Festival in 2010.

Run at Boston’s Huntington Theater is set to play Nov. 11-Dec. 11. No set plans have been announced for the potential move to Gotham.
