NEW YORK CITY - Lincoln Center Theater (under the direction of Andre Bishop, Artistic Director, and Bernard Gersten, Executive Producer) has announced productions that will open this fall.

LCT3 will open its 2012-2013 season with DISGRACED, a new play by Ayad Akhtar, directed by Kimberly Senior. Previews begin October 7 at LCT3's new home at Lincoln Center Theater, the Claire Tow Theater.

DISGRACED is the story of Amir Kapoor (Aasif Mandvi), a successful Pakistani-American lawyer who is rapidly moving up the corporate ladder while distancing himself from his cultural roots. When Amir and his wife Emily (Heidi Armbruster), a white artist influenced by Islamic imagery, host a dinner party, what starts out as a friendly conversation escalates into something far more damaging. 

VANYA AND SONIA AND MASHA AND SPIKE is produced by Lincoln Center Theater in association with the McCarter Theater, where it was commissioned and where it will run from September 7 through October 7, prior to beginning performances in New York.

In VANYA AND SONIA AND MASHA AND SPIKE playwright Christopher Durang takes characters and themes from Chekhov, mixes them up and pour them into a blender; and the result is his latest play set in present day Bucks County, Pennsylvania.  Vanya and his stepsister Sonia have lived their entire lives in their family’s farmhouse.  While they stayed home to take care of their ailing parents, their sister Masha has been gallivanting around the world as a successful actress and movie star, leaving Vanya and Sonia to feel trapped and regretful.  Their soothsayer/cleaning woman Cassandra keeps warning them about terrible things in the future, which include a sudden visit from Masha  and her twenty-something boy toy Spike. The cast includes David Hyde Pierce and Sigourney Weaver.

Clifford Odets’ GOLDEN BOY, is the story of Joe Bonaparte, a young, gifted violinist who is torn between pursuing a career in music and earning big money as a prize fighter. This will be a rare Broadway production for the Odets’ classic which originally premiered on Broadway in 1937 at the Belasco Theatre and has only been revived once.

Clifford Odets (1906 – 1963) dropped out of high school at the age of 17 to become an actor.  As one of the original members of the New York City-based left-wing ensemble, the Group Theatre, Odets found his true calling as a playwright who explored the pressing social issues of the day. He also wrote many screenplays including the film adaptation of the novel Sweet Smell of Success.

With tight musicians and intriguing lyrics, Happy Freuds delivers high energy guitar rock with stylistic flair on Echo Of Sounds, their debut release. Produced with a minimum of overdubs or fixes, the album consists of a mix of original material, rearrangements of works from others and selected, less known, classic rock.

A kinetic rhythm section is the bones of the music, offering interesting patterns that augment sometimes unexpected harmonic changes. It's brainy rock, in other words, meant for music lovers who can appreciate the quality. Teo's vocals are raspy and expressive, growly when necessary - perfect for the musical mode. Teo also covers lead guitar, adapt at ear worm leads, with a tone that can be clean or dirty as required

Their sound ranges from straight up hard rock in tracks like The Mountain to the pop-flavoured acoustic Background Noise and folky To …
