The Labyrinth Theater Company has announced its fall 2013 season, which will include Obie and Drama Desk Award winner Eric Bogosian performing 100 monologues from his one-man shows from the 1980s and '90s, a new play by Dominique Morisseau (Detroit '67) and a new series of "artist salons," featuring performances and conversations with company members.
The season will kick off with the "artist salons," which will feature poet Craig "muMs" Grant (HBO's Oz), Tony nominee Daphne Rubin-Vega and Emmy nominee David Bar Katz. Grant will perform September 9 through 10, Rubin-Vega on September 16 and 17 and Katz on September 23 through 24 at Labyrinth's Bank Street Theater.
Bogosian will read and perform selections from his new book, 100, which features monologues originally performed as part of his six off-Broadway solo shows. The selections will differ at each performance, and will include monologues from Sex, Drugs, Rock & Roll, Pounding Nails in the Floor with my Forehead, Wake Up and Smell the Coffee and more. 100 Monologues will run from October 1 through 20.
Written by Morisseau, Sunset Baby tells the story of a former black revolutionary and political prisoner who decides to connect with his estranged daughter. He quickly discovers that fatherhood might be the most challenging revolution of all. Sunset Baby will begin performances November 6.
This season is the first to be planned by the company's new artistic director, Mimi O’Donnell. A Labyrinth spring production will be announced at a later date.
