Abel Ferrara is set to make his Broadway debut, directing the revival of MIGUEL PINERO's SHORT EYES.
The King of New York director is reviving the original 1974 production, which follows the lives of a racially-mixed group of inmates at a New York prison who are joined by a white middle-class man accused of raping a girl.
Carl Rumbaugh and Susan Batson - who worked on the 2004 Broadway revival of A Raisin in the Sun, starring Sean 'Diddy' Combs - will produce, along with Antone Pagan and Charles Rosen.
Casting has not yet begun on the show, which is expected to debut during the 2010-2011 season.
