'Devil' gets due.

David Babani, the Chocolate Factory's indefatigable producer, has his hands full. He'll follow the Neil Simon-Marvin Hamlisch-Carole Bayer Sager tuner with a change of pace: Rising director Jonathan Munby will helm John Webster's macabre Jacobean revenge tragedy "The White Devil." And, subject to contractual agreement, that production will be followed at Christmas by Trevor Nunn's revival of Stephen Sondheim's "A Little Night Music."

Babani is also finalizing plans for a West End run for his revival of "La Cage aux Folles." Early talk of a non-theater space to match the club-like ambiance of the initial SRO Chocolate Factory run appears to have foundered.

Casting is under way for a transfer to a more traditional theater.
