Off Broadway 2010-2011

The big Off Broadway nonprofits are starting to announce their upcoming seasons.

So far:

The Public: Gatz, Lisa Kron's In the Wake, UK Tricycle Theatre's 3-part epic The Great Game: Afghanistan, Rinne Groff's Compulsion, Tony Kushner's Intelligent Homosexual's Guide to Capitalism and Socialism with a Key to the Scriptures (coproduced with Signature Theatre's Kushner season), and Stephen Adly Guirgis's The Motherfucker with the Hat (coproduced with LAByrinth Theater Company).

Playwrights Horizons: Edward Albee's Me, Myself, and I; After the Revolution by Amy Herzog; Adam Bock's A Small Fire; Kin by Batsheba Doran; David Greenspan's Go Back to Where you Are.

Any reactions?  Recommendations?

Interesting that the Public (aka "New York Shakespeare Festival") season is entirely new plays.  But it is admittedly quite a heavy-hitting lineup.

I'm most excited about NYTW's new season, but after that--looking forward to seeing some Bock and Groff. And fearing that the Kushner and Albee plays will be terrible.

If you haven't seen Bathsheba Doran's work yet, you should be in for a treat. This is good news.

Looking forward to her play coming up at the Flea.
