Jonathan Cake will join Tina Benko, Alan Mandell, Danny Mastrogiorgio, Natalija Nogulich, and Claudia Shear in New York Theatre Workshop's production of Shear's Restoration, to run April 30-June 13. Christopher Ashley will direct the production, which will open officially on May 19.

In the show, Shear plays Giulia, a down-on-her-luck art restorer from Brooklyn who receives what could possibly be a career-reviving job of "refreshing" Michelangelo's David in time for its quincentennial celebration in Florence. The show had a previous production at the La Jolla Playhouse.

The creative team includes Scott Pask (scenic design), David C. Woolard (costume design), David Lander (lighting design), Dan Moses Schreier (sound design), and Kristin Ellert (video design).

Cake's many stage credits include the Broadway productions of The Philanthropist, Cymbeline and Medea, as well as Almost an Evening, Parlour Song, Baby Doll, Coriolanus, and Doubt.
