Tony Award winner Roger Bart, stage and screen star Anna Chlumsky, and four-time Tony Award nominee Raúl Esparza will guest star on an upcoming episode of NBC's long-running series Law & Order: SVU.

The episode, titled "Twenty-Five Acts," centers on the author of a best-selling erotic novel (Chlumsky) who accuses a high-profile talk show host (Bart) of a brutal rape. The SVU detectives face an uphill battle when they find that her account of the rape is exactly like the chapters in her book, and along with a member of the DA's office (Esparza), they struggle to keep the case from turning into a media circus.

The series, which will begin its 14th season next month, stars Emmy Award winner Mariska Hargitay, Danny Pino, Kelli Giddish, Richard Belzer, Ice-T, and Dann Florek.
