James Knight and Kelly McAndrew will star in the world premiere of Kenny Finkle's romantic comedy, Alive and Well in a co-production from the Old Globe Theatre and Virginia Stage Company. The play will run in the Sheryl and Harvey White Theatre March 20-April 25, with an opening on March 25. Jeremy Dobrish will direct.

Alive and Well tells the tale of Carla Keenan (McAndrew), a big city reporter down on her luck, and Zachariah Clemenson (Knight), a roughish Civil War re-enactor, who set out on a quest in Virginia to find the elusive Lonesome Soldier -- the oldest living Civil War veteran.

The creative team will feature Robin Sanford Roberts (scenic design), Shelly Williams (costume design), Michael Gottlieb (lighting design), and Paul Peterson (sound design).

Finkle's other plays include Indoor/Outdoor and Bridezilla Strikes Back (co-written with Cynthia Silver). Dobrish is currently helming Signs of Life in New York, where he has also directed numerous plays including Judas and Me, Spain, and Election Day .
