Michole Briana White will replace previously announced star LisaGay Hamilton in the world premiere of Tanya Barfield's drama Of Equal Measure, to play the Kirk Douglas Theatre, June 29-July 27. The production, which will open officially on July 11, will be directed by Leigh Silverman. Hamilton withdrew from the production for personal reasons.

The play provides an illuminating perspective of the Woodrow Wilson presidency as viewed through the character of Jade Kingston, an African American stenographer working in the White House.

The cast also includes Dennis Cockrum, Scott Dawson, Michael Hyland, Joseph C. Phillips, Lawrence Pressman, T. Ryder Smith, Christopher Warren, and Michael T. Weiss.

The creative team features Richard Hoover and Sybil Wickersheimer (sets), Rachel Myers (costumes), Lap Chi Chu (lighting), Adam Phalen (sound), Jason H. Thompson (projection), and Kathryn Bostic (music composition). Silverman and Barfield previously worked together on the play Blue Door.
