DTC lines up world premieres

Joseph, Aguirre-Sacasa shows bow in Dallas

Two world preems — a musical co-written by Rajiv Joseph and a vampire outing from Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa — are among the shows lined up for the 2012-13 season at the Dallas Theater Center.

The tuner by Joseph (“Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo”) with music by “In the Heights” orchestrator Bill Sherman, “Fly” (July 2-Aug. 18, 2013) fashions a new take on the story of Peter Pan. Jeffrey Seller, the Gotham producer of shows including “Rent” and “In the Heights,” makes his helming debut on the production, with another “In the Heights” alum, Andy Blankenbuehler, on board to choreograph.

Latest by Aguirre-Sacasa, the book writer of “Spider-Man: Turn off the Dark” and also the scribe behind DTC’s revised 2010 version of “It’s a Bird… It’s a Plane… It’s Superman,” is a new adpatation of Bram Stoker’s familiar vamp tale, here called “The Dracula Cycle” (March 15-April 28). DTC a.d. Kevin Moriarty directs.

Rock musical “Fly By Night,” previously seen in a run at California regional Theaterworks, comes from Kim Rosenstock (“Tigers Be Still”), Michael Mitnick (the upcoming tuner version of “Animal House”) and Will Connolly. Bill Fennelly directs the story of three young New Yorkers during a 1965 blackout.

A comedy outing from Chicago’s Second City, called “The Second City Does Dallas,” is also in the slate, as are regional productions of “The Elaborate Entrance of Chad Deity,” “Red,” “A Christmas Carol” and “King Lear.”
