Mulligan toplines Off Broadway ‘Darkly’

Leveaux directs Atlantic Theater production

Carey Mulligan will topline an Off Broadway stage version of Ingmar Bergman pic “Through a Glass Darkly,” to be helmed by David Leveaux in the spring.

Atlantic Theater Company produces “Darkly” in association with Andrew Higgie, Back Row Prods. and Debbie Bisno. The play will be the final offering of the company’s 2010-11 season, although because the org’s usual mainstage space is currently under renovation, the production will run at New York Theater Workshop (which is not involved as a producer).

The show replaces the previously announced “Four Pickups,” the Ethan Coen play that has now beenpushed back to a future season, according to the Atlantic.

Jenny Worton penned the legit adaptation of “Darkly,” which bowed last year at the Almeida Theater, where Worton is artistic associate.

London staging was helmed by Michael Attenborough and starred Ruth Wilson.

Mulligan last appeared on the New York stage in the 2008 revival of “The Seagull.” Leveaux’s Gotham gigs have included Broadway productions of “Cyrano de Bergerac,” “Fiddler on the Roof” and “Nine.”

Taken from the 1961 Bergman film, storyline centers on a mentally unbalanced woman (Mulligan) vacationing on a remote island with her husband, her father and her brother.

Additional casting and design team remain to be announced. “Darkly” begins previews May 13 ahead of a June 6 opening.
