Currently in previews, the LCT3 world premiere production of ALL-AMERICAN, a new play by Julia Brownell, directed by Evan Cabnet, opens Monday, November 7 at 6:45 pm at The Duke on 42nd Street, a New 42nd Street® project (229 West 42 Street). LCT3 is Lincoln Center Theater's programming initiative devoted to producing the work of new artists and developing new audiences. ALL-AMERICAN is the first production of its fourth season. ALL-AMERICAN runs through November 19.
ALL-AMERICAN, which features Rebecca Creskoff, Meredith Forlenza, Brock Harris, Sarah Steele, C.J. Wilson and Harry Zittel, has sets by Lee Savage, costumes by Jessica Wegener Shay, lighting by Japhy Weidman and sound by Jill BC DuBoff.
ALL-AMERICAN is the story of a modern American family: suburban dad and former NFL star Mike Slattery (played by C.J. Wilson) works hard to make his daughter Katie (Meredith Forlenza) the new star quarterback at her new school while ignoring her brainy twin brother Aaron (Harry Zittel). But Katie isn't sure she wants to keep playing and Mike's wife Beth (Rebecca Creskoff) isn't sure she wants to keep playing along.
ALL-AMERICAN is performed Monday through Saturday evenings at 8pm, with matinees Wednesdays and Saturdays at 2pm. Tickets, all priced at $20, are available at The Duke on 42nd Street box office, by visiting Dukeon42.org, or by calling 646-223-3010.
The 2011-2012 season will mark a milestone for LCT3. In late spring 2012, LCT3 will move into its new home, the Claire Tow Theater, a 131-seat theater currently being built on the roof of the Vivian Beaumont Theater. In addition, Lincoln Center Theater will reopen LCT3's recent, critically acclaimed production of 4000 Miles, a new play by Amy Herzog, directed by Daniel Aukin, as part of its regular Mitzi E. Newhouse Theater season in April.
Currently, Lincoln Center Theater is presenting the Tony Award-winning Best Play, War Horse, directed by Marianne Elliott and Tom Morris at the Vivian Beaumont Theater, the Broadway production of Jon Robin Baitz's critically acclaimed new play, Other Desert Cities, directed by Joe Mantello at the Booth Theatre and Blood and Gifts, a new play by J.T. Rogers, directed by Bartlett Sher at the Mitzi E. Newhouse Theater.
