Briefly noted: A new stage credit, a newly restored film

The October 12 New Yorker included a report by Nick Paumgarten on a production credit you may see in a theatrical playbill someday: sex choreographer. The particular production he was writing about, of a Thomas Bradshaw play called Fulfillment, already opened and closed at The Flea in New York, but it will reopen next month at American Theater Company in Chicago.

A masterwork of the French New Wave, Jacques Rivette’s Out 1: noli me tangere, was originally released in 1971 but has seldom been seen since because of its 12-hour-plus running time. A correspondent who’s much better versed in French film than I am called it, by email, “a great, really stunning work.” The film has recently been restored and will be shown in its entirety at BAM beginning November 4. My alert correspondent discovered that a home-video release, on Blu-ray as well as DVD, will arrive later in November. You can find that news here, and a 2006 appreciation of the film by Dennis Lim here.
