The Mint Theater Company has announced casting for two of its 2009-2010 productions.

Real-life couple Jordan Baker and Kevin Kilner will star in Is Life Worth Living? (August 19-October 11), a comedy by Lennox Robinson and directed by the Mint's artistic director, Jonathan Bank. The piece focuses on a pair of married actors heading up a troupe of traveling players in Ireland. The cast will also include Leah Curney, Bairbre Dowling, Brian Keane, John Keating, Laurie Kennedy, Jeremy Lawrence, Erin Moon, Grant Neale, Paul O'Brien, and Graham Outerbridge. The creative team will include Susan Zeeman Rogers (set), Martha Hally (costumes), Jeff Nellis (lighting), and Jane Shaw (sound).

Emmy Award winner Kristen Johnston will star in So Help Me God!, which will perform downtown at the Lucille Lortel Theater, beginning November 18. Martin Platt will direct this backstage farce by Maurine Dallas Watkins. Johnston will play Lily, a fabulous dramatic diva who must fend off a challenge from her ambitious but naïve understudy.
