Signature Theatre has announced their 2018-2019 season. Among their works will be two revivals of Lynn Nottage’s works: Fabulation, Or The Re-Education Of Undine (November 20-December 30) and By The Way, Meet Vera Stark (January 29-March 10). Also, Dave Malloy’s new musical Octet will run from April 30-June 19. Like Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet Of 1812, Octet will not be your grandparents’ type of musical. It features, in Broadway.com’s words,
“a score for an a cappella chamber choir and an original libretto inspired by Internet comment boards, scientific debates, religious texts and Sufi poetry.”
Also, from April 23-June 2, a revival of Sam Shepard’s Curse Of The Starving Class will take place. https://www.broadway.com/buzz/191798/great-comet-creator-dave-malloy-to-debut-new-musical-in-signature-theatres-2018-2019-season/April 16, 2018 at 2:29 pm #1202530582
