Blythe Danner will play the over-protective mother; Jonathan Groff will be the self-reliant sightless man; Betty Gilpin will perform as the kooky free-spirit who tries to help him break from his mother's smothering influence; and Andrew Grusetskie will portray the playboy director who threatens their new-found love.
WCP originally staged Butterflies Are Free 40 seasons ago, starring Danner and Dullea. The comedy transferred to Broadway, where it ran over three years, earning Danner a Tony Award.
