Dan Lauria and Liz Larsen will join previously announced star Jack Klugman in Jeffrey Sweet's The Value of Names at the George Street Playhouse in New Brunswick. The show, to be directed by James Glossman, will run November 14-December 17. Lauria will replace John Cullum, who withdrew due to a schedule conflict.

The play concerns Benny (Klugman), a retired comic whose career was derailed by the blacklist, who finally gets the opportunity to confront Leo (Lauria) his former best friend, who accused him of being a Communist. Larsen will play Norma, Benny's daughter.

Lauria has recently appeared Off-Broadway in A Stone Carver and Ears on a Beatle, and was last seen at George Street in Inspecting Carol. He is best known for his work on the TV series The Wonder Years.

Larsen has starred on Broadway in The Most Happy Fella, for which she received a Tony Award nomination, as well as Hairspray, Fiddler on the Roof, Damn Yankees, and The Rocky Horror Show. She was seen earlier this year Off-Broadway in Bingo.

Klugman has starred in numerous Broadway shows including Golden Boy, Gypsy, The Odd Couple, I'm Not Rappaport, and the revivals of The Sunshine Boys and Three Men on a Horse. He is best known for playing Oscar Madison on the TV sitcom The Odd Couple.
