Daniel Labeille has been retired for about a decade. But when Auburn Public Theater asked him to direct a show he’s wanted to helm for 40 years, he returned to the chair.
The show is Harold Pinter’s “Betrayal,” which will be performed at the theater this weekend and next by a cast of three: Maria DeMitchell, Kevin Shumway and Dave Tobin.
The theater’s artistic director, Angela Daddabbo, said she offered Labeille the show after asking him to sit on its board of directors. He’d have brought to the board one of the area’s strongest artistic resumes: Labeille started Cayuga Community College’s award-winning theater department in 1967, and has directed more than 40 productions over the course of his career.
