Joseph Adler, artistic director at GableStage in Coral Gables’ Biltmore Hotel, has filled the last empty spot in his 20012-2013 season lineup with a hot British import. Mike Bartlett’s Olivier Award-winning Cock, which is running Off-Broadway at the Duke on 42nd Street through Oct. 7, is about a guy who take a break from his boyfriend, only to fall in love with a gal. Adler will offer up his own take on the sexually charged battle May 18-June 16, 2013.
He’ll close out his current season with Lynn Nottage’s Pulitzer Prize-winning Ruined Sept. 8-Oct. 7, then begin his next season with David Ives’ Venus in Fur Nov. 10-Dec. 9. Next comes an adaptation of Hamlet by Tarell Alvin McCraney and Bijan Shebani (Jan. 12-Feb. 10), then Amy Herzog’s 4000 Miles (March 16-April 14), Cock (May 18-June 16), David Lindsay-Abaire’s Good People (July 20-Aug. 18) and Stephen Karam’s Sons of the Prophet (Sept. 21-Oct. 20, 2013). Subscriptions to the six plays of the new season are $200 for current subscribers, $225 for new ones. For information, call 305-445-1119 or visit www.gablestage.org.
‘The Donkey Show,’ that melding of Shakespeare and Studio 54, will head out to pasture (or wherever closed shows go) after one more week of performances on the stage of the Ziff Ballet Opera House at the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts.
