Lindsay-Abaire's Rabbit Hole Opens on Bway in Feb.

David Lindsay-Abaire's Rabbit Hole has switched its itinerary from off-Broadway's City Center to Broadway, where it will premiere at MTC's Biltmore Theatre in February in a production directed by Daniel Sullivan.

The play traces the aftermath of a tragic accident, and its reverberations on the lives of a young married couple when they are deprived of their child.

Lindsay-Abaire is perhaps best known for his play Fuddy Meers, which premiered at MTC before heading off for a hit run at the Minetta Lane Theatre; it is currently being produced as a feature film. Lindsay-Abaire's other darkly comic and provocative works include Wonder of the World (also staged at MTC after premiering in DC and being nominated for an Outstanding New Play of the Year Helen Hayes Award), and Kimberly Akimbo, which after premiering at the South Coast Rep, received the L.A. Drama Critics Circle Award for playwriting, three Garland Awards, and the 2001 Kesselring Prize. He is currently working on the musical adaptations of Shrek and Betty Boop.

Sullivan is the director of the Biltmore's current tenant, Elaine May's After the Night and the Music. His other Broadway credits include the recent revival of Julius Caesar, Brooklyn Boy, Sight Unseen, The Retreat from Moscow, the revivals of I'm Not Rappaport, Morning's at Seven, Major Barbara, A Moon for the Misbegotten, and many others. MTC will also stage Alan Ayckbourn's Absurd Person Singular
at the Biltmore later in the season, although no date has yet been slated for the comedy.
