QUICK TAKES

LaBute play headed to Geffen

September 13, 2007|Mike Boehm

For the second consecutive season, Neil LaBute, pegged in some circles as America's master dramatist of misanthropy, and in others as merely exceedingly dark, returns to the Geffen Playhouse in Westwood, this time as director as well as playwright.

"Some Girl(s)," which played in London and off-Broadway in 2005 and 2006, concerns a bridegroom-to-be who feels compelled to seek out all the girls he's previously loved (four, count 'em) before his date at the altar.

Sitcom stars David Schwimmer and Eric McCormack played the commitment-averse swain in previous productions; no word yet on casting for the version opening Feb. 6 in the Geffen's Audrey Skirball Kenis Theater, where LaBute's "Fat Pig" played last spring.
