REGIONAL (Minneapolis, MN) Guthrie Theater announces additional details of 2012-13 season

GUTHRIE THEATER ANNOUNCES ADDITIONAL DETAILS OF 2012-13 SEASON

Complete dates for Dowling Studio programming including a Pillsbury House Theatre production of Tracey Scott Wilson’s Buzzer; Lisa Peterson to direct Clybourne Park; and casting of Stephen Yoakam in An Iliad.

(Minneapolis/St. Paul) Following on the April 16, 2012, announcement of the Guthrie’s 2012-13 season, Director Joe Dowling today announced dates for productions in the upcoming season in the Dowling Studio, as well as further details of directing and casting.

The 2012-13 season in the Dowling Studio will include As You Like It, presented by The Acting Company in association with the Guthrie, running January 12—February 3, 2013, directed by Dan Rothenberg. As You Like It, Shakespeare’s comedy about young people in love who flee into the Forest of Arden and find themselves in a game of romance, lust and mistaken identity, represents a continuation of the artistic partnership between the Guthrie and The Acting Company, the prestigious touring classical company based in New York.

The next show of the Dowling Studio 2012-13 season will be the Guthrie presentation of a Pillsbury House Theatre production of Buzzer by Tracey Scott Wilson, directed by Marion McClinton (In the Red and Brown Water) and running February 8—March 3, 2013. An exploration of race in America through the prism of three young people living together in a neighborhood in the process of gentrification, Buzzer was a co-commission between the Guthrie and Pillsbury House Theatre and appeared at Pillsbury House earlier in 2012.

Next in the Dowling Studio will be a Guthrie presentation of a Mu Performing Arts production of R.A. Shiomi’s Yellow Fever, directed by Rick Shiomi (Yellow Face) and running March 8-24, 2013. Yellow Fever, a comedic mystery, takes place in the Japanese community of Vancouver and tells the story of a private investigator trapped in a web of politics and race while searching for the mysterious Cherry Blossom Queen.

Finishing the 2012-13 season in the Dowling Studio will be An Iliad, running May 4—26, 2013, a one-performer interpretation of the classical story by Homer adapted by Lisa Peterson and Denis O’Hare, translated by Robert Fagles and directed by Benjamin McGovern (The Edge of Our Bodies). Dowling additionally announced that An Iliad will be performed by longtime Guthrie favorite Stephen Yoakam (The Birds, The Burial at Thebes).

Dowling also announced that the Guthrie’s production of Clybourne Park by Bruce Norris in the McGuire Proscenium Stage from June 1—August 4, 2013 will be directed by Lisa Peterson (Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, Major Barbara). Clybourne Park, winner of the 2011 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and 2012 Tony Award nominee for Best Play, deals with generations of race and class across the span of a half-century in a neighborhood in Chicago.

Single tickets for productions in the Dowling Studio range from $24 to $39 and go on sale August 10. For more information or to purchase tickets or season subscriptions, call the Guthrie Theater Box Office 612.377.2224 or toll-free 877.44.STAGE, 612.225.6244 (Group Sales) and online at www.guthrietheater.org.
