Atlantic Theater Company sets additional 2023-24 season productions
Three new shows — two new plays and one new children's musical — join a previously announced new Annie Baker play and a Buena Vista Social Club musical.
Atlantic Theater Company has set the next three productions in its 2023-24 Off-Broadway season, all premiering in the spring and summer at the company's two theatres in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan.
First is El Otro Oz, a bilingual children's musical about Dora, a 15-year-old girl who gets swept away to a strange new land ahead of her quinceañera. Salsa, merengue, and Mexican folk music score this show about how she learns to understand her family's traditions while finding her own voice. Melissa Crespo directs the show by Mando Alvarado (book), Jaime Lozano (music and lyrics), and Tommy Newman (book, music, and lyrics), at Atlantic Stage 2 from January 13 to February 18.
Next, at the Linda Gross Theater, is the American premiere of Tony nominee Lucy Kirkwood's play The Welkin. In rural England in 1759, a woman sentenced to death claims she is pregnant, and 12 other women gather to decide whether she's telling the truth. Obie Award winner Sarah Benson directs.
Finally, Shayan Lotfi's What Became of Us will go up at Atlantic Stage 2 in May 2024, with dates and a director to be set. Two siblings born in different countries discover how to stay connected to each other and each other's heritages. This world-premiere play marks Lotfi's Off-Broadway debut.
These three shows join two previously announced shows in the fall season, including Pulitzer winner Annie Baker's Infinite Life, now in performances. Later this fall is Buena Vista Social Club, a musical about the pioneering Cuban music group of the same name.
