Jan Maxwell has replaced Lisa Emery as Kath in the cast of the Roundabout Theater Company's upcoming production of Joe Orton's Entertaining Mr. Sloane, which will run February 17-May 21 at the Laura Pels Theater.

As previously reported, Alec Baldwin, Chris Carmack, and Richard Easton will co-star in the show, under the direction of Scott Ellis. Emery has chosen to remain with the New Group's production of Abigail's Party, which has been extended through February 19.

Orton's play concerns Mr. Sloane (Carmack), a sexy young man who takes a room in the home of a woman named Kath (Maxwell) and ends up bewitching not only his libidinous landlady but also her brother, Ed (Baldwin) and even their father, Kemp (Easton). The creative team for the Roundabout production includes Allan Moyer (sets), Michael Krass (costumes), Kenneth Posner (lighting), and John Gramada (sound design).

Maxwell is currently finishing her run as Baroness Bomburst in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, for which performance she received the Drama Desk Award and a Tony Award nomination. Her Broadway credits include Sixteen Wounded, The Dinner Party, The Sound of Music and A Doll's House, and she has been seen Off-Broadway in such shows as The Bald Soprano, My Old Lady, and House and Garden.
