Lincoln Center Theater's LCT3 Announces 2013-2014 Season of Three New Works
Plays by JC Lee, Rude Mechs, and Pulitzer Prize winner Ayad Akhtar make up the season.
Following Luce will be the world premiere of the Rude Mechs' Stop Hitting Yourself, an examination of how to honor individualism without disavowing charity, borrowing from Pygmalion to Busby Berkley. The production will run January 13-February 23 and open on January 27. The season's final offering will be Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Ayad Akhtar's new play The Who and The What. Kimberly Senior (Disgraced) will direct this look at the chasm between our traditions and our contemporary lives when it plays May 31-July 13. The Who and The What will open June 16.
In addition, LCT3's special events series will continue this summer with a return engagement of Young Jean Lee's Theater Company's We're Gonna Die, which will play 10 performances from August 5-17 in the Claire Tow Theater.
