YesBroadway 40 Under 40 playwright Sarah DeLappe's brave The Wolves is a hit and a half! It is no wonder, then, that Lincoln Center Theater has decided to produce it Off-Broadway this fall. The drama that unfolds when a high school girl's soccer team meets on the pitch will leave you breathless in this new play, which was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for Drama...no big deal!
This Lincoln Center Theater production seems like it will be a fairly straightfoward transfer from the one last year at Playwright's Realm, with buzzy director Lila Neugebauer and a majority of the cast all on board. Shows that play at LCT's Mitzi E. Newhouse Theater are often on a solid trajectory towards Broadway, so get your tickets ASAP to say you "saw it when"...at Off-Broadway prices!
Starts November 1.
