Ken Ludwig's Leading Ladies (June 5-July 1), is a comedy about two down-on-their-luck actors who dress as women to con a dying woman out of her millions.

In Michael Hollinger's Ghost-Writer (August 21-September 16), acclaimed novelist Franklin Woolsey has died. But his devoted secretary remains poised at her typewriter - waiting to channel the words that will complete his masterpiece.

The season will conclude with the musical revue Ain't Misbehavin' (October 9-November 4), based on the life and music of Thomas "Fats" Waller, conceived by Richard Maltby, Jr. and based on an idea by Murray Horwitz and Richard Maltby, Jr.
