Playwright Redux

Coming up this season are three productions written by playwrights I have recently enjoyed, coming back for another bite at The Big Apple.

HEISENBERG is being presented by The Manhattan Theater Club and was written by Simon Stephens.  He is best known for his adaptation of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime, which was pretty interesting.  I most enjoyed his play Punk Rock which played off Broadway last season.  I am very interested in seeing this play.

THE CHERRY ORCHARD was, I know, written by Anton Chekhov but has a new adaptation by Stephen Karam.  I very much enjoyed seeing his The Humans which is still on Broadway as I write this – see it if you can.  I am interested in what he will do with this script.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE is being presented off-Broadway this year by the Roundabout Theater Company.  It was written by Mike Bartlett, whose King Charles III was one of the best and most surprising plays last season.  Looking forward to seeing his riff on life in the sixties.

So, this fall I get the chance to follow new works of three artists I have come to admire.  Can’t wait!
