Yale Rep, Harbor Stage Company unveil seasons

A rock ’n’ roll remake of Shakespeare’s “Much Ado About Nothing,” with original songs by Billie Joe Armstrong of pop-punk band Green Day and Broadway’s “American Idiot,” will have its world premiere at Yale Repertory Theatre next spring. Adapted by Pulitzer Prize finalist Rolin Jones (“The Intelligent Design of Jenny Chow”) and directed by his fellow Yale School of Drama graduate Jackson Gay, “These Paper Bullets” will turn the tale of two couples in Messina into a tale of four lads from Liverpool, searching for love and trying to record an album. Taking its title from a line spoken by Benedick in “Much Ado,” it will run March 14-April 5, 2014, at the University Theatre.

Also in Yale Rep’s 2013-14 season are Tennessee Williams’s “A Streetcar Named Desire,” directed by Mark Rucker and running Sept. 20-Oct. 12; Caryl Churchill’s “Owners,” directed by Evan Yionoulis, Oct. 25-Nov. 16; Dario Fo’s “Accidental Death of an Anarchist,” directed by Christopher Bayes and featuring Steven Epp, Nov. 30-Dec. 21; Meg Miroshnik’s “The Fairytale Lives of Russian Girls,” Jan. 31-Feb. 22, 2014; and the world premiere of Marcus Gardley’s “The House That Will Not Stand,” directed by Patricia McGregor, April 18-May 10, 2014.
