Richard Greenberg's comedy A Naked Girl on the Appian Way will have its New York premiere at the Roundabout's American Airlines Theatre this fall. Preview performances will begin on September 9 in advance of an official opening on October 6, and the show is scheduled to run through November 27. No casting has yet been announced for the project.

Doug Hughes, winner of the 2005 Tony Award for Best Director for Doubt, will helm the show. He is also currently represented by the Roundabout's production of Jon Robin Baitz's The Paris Letter and is set to direct the company's upcoming revival of Eugene O'Neill's A Touch of the Poet (starring Gabriel Byrne), which will follow Naked Girl into the American Airlines.

A Naked Girl on the Appian Way follows the chain reaction of revelations in an American neighborhood when two siblings return home after a year-long excursion in Europe. Greenberg's plays The Dazzle and Hurrah at Last have previously been produced by the Roundabout. His other works include the Pulitzer Prize-winning Take Me Out, The Violet Hour, Eastern Standard, and Three Days of Rain.
