NEW YORK — James Franco is adding another notch to his expansive resume: stage director.
Rattlestick Playwrights Theater said Monday that Franco will direct Robert Boswell’s world premiere play “The Long Shrift” from July 7-Aug. 23. The off-Broadway job will coincide with Franco’s current one on Broadway as an actor in “Of Mice and Men.”
Franco has seemingly been dipping his toe into every element of show business, from acting in TV and films like “Pineapple Express” and “Spider-Man” to screenwriting and producing, to writing a novel and being an artist.
He made his Broadway debut this spring in “Of Mice and Men,” which ends its run July 27.
