Geffen Playhouse has announced complete casting for its upcoming world-premiere musical The Lonely Few. Directed by Trip Cullman and Ellenore Scott, performances will run February 28-April 9, with an official March 9 opening.

With book by Rachel Bonds (Sundown, Yellow Moon), and music and lyrics by Zoe Sarnak (A Crossing), The Lonely Few is described as follows: "Lila is getting by in her Kentucky hometown—scanning groceries at the Save-A-Lot, caring for her erratic brother, and living for Friday nights, when she plays a gig with her band The Lonely Few. And that's enough. Or she thought it was, until Amy, an established musician ragged from the road, passes through and offers her a shot at something much, much bigger. But is Lila ready for the life she never dared to imagine?"

The cast will star Tony Award winner Lauren Patten (Jagged Little Pill) as Lila, with Joshua Close (Fargo) as Adam, Damon Daunno (Oklahoma!) as Dylan, Ciara Renée (Frozen) as Amy, Helen J Shen (Man of God) as JJ, and Thomas Silcott (Becky Nurse of Salem) as Paul.

The Lonely Few was commissioned as part of the Geffen Playhouse's New Play Development Program and is produced in association with FourthWall Theatrical.
