Full casting has been announced for New Group's production of Eugene O'Neill's Mourning Becomes Electra to play Theatre Row, January 27-April 18, with an opening set for February 19. Scott Elliott will direct.

This trilogy of plays re-imagines the Oresteia, bringing the intense familial conflicts of this classic story to a tightly wound New England town.

In addition to previously announced stars Jena Malon (Lavinia Mannon) and Lili Taylor (Christine Mannon), the cast will feature Mark Blum (Ezra Mannon), Joseph Cross (Orin Mannon), Robert Hogan (Seth), and Anson Mount (Brant), along with Carolyn Baeumler, Therese Barbato, Geoffrey Bryant, Susan Goodwillie, Mycah Hogan, Patrick Mapel, Sean Meehan, Phoebe Strole, and John Wojda. John Cullum, who was previously announced to play Seth, will continue to star in Broadway's August: Osage County.

The creative team will include Derek McLane (sets), Susan Hilferty (costumes), Jason Lyons (lighting), Shane Rettig (sound), and Pat Metheny (original music).
