KEENAN-BOLGER SAVED, MASON FEMININE, BOGART DEAD

IN THE BEGINNING
By David Lefkowitz
Published May 10 2007

  Marsha Mason

Initial casting for the 2007-08 season at off-Broadway's Playwrights Horizons has been announced, with veteran actress Marsha Mason and 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee alum Celia Keenan-Bolger part of the mix.

Mason, of Goodbye Girl renown, will star in Sarah Treem's A Feminine Ending, which starts performances in October. Another veteran thesp, Blair Brown (Copenhagen, TV's (The Days and Nights of Molly Dodd), will direct the piece, about a young woman choosing between her boyfriend and her musical career.

Keenan-Bolger, just coming off a stint in the Les Miserables revival, will lead the world premiere of the musical Saved. John Dempsey, who co-wrote the tuners Zombie Prom and The Witches of Eastwick, here collaborates with Michael Friedman on the score and playwright Rinne Groff(The Ruby Sunrise) on the book. Set to open in spring 2008, Saved will be helmed by The Color Purple director Gary Griffin.

 

Also on tap for 2007-08: the latest from The Clean House's Sarah Ruhl Dead Man's Cell Phone, to be staged by SITI Company founder Anne Bogart; Ethan McSweeney directing 100 Saints You Should Know, a world premiere by Hannah and Martin author Kate Fodor; Jordan Harrison's time-traveling Doris to Darlene: A Cautionary Valentine; and Adam Bock's The Drunken City, about three brides-to-be on a pub crawl.

Now in its 37th year, Playwrights Horizons (playwrightshorizons.org) is currently headed by Tim Sanford and utilizes two spaces in its 42nd Street home: a mainstage and the smaller Peter Jay Sharp Theater. The company's production of Grey Gardens transferred to Broadway this season and is likely to be a strong contender during awards season.
