Full casting has been announced for Manhattan Theatre Club's production of Henry Krieger and John Patrick Shanley's world premiere musical Romantic Poetry, to begin previews on September 30, with an opening set for October 28.

Jeb Brown, Jerry Dixon, and Emily Swallow will join previously announced cast members Ivan Hernandez, Mark Linn-Baker, and Patina Renea Miller in the show, to be directed by Shanley. In this crackpot musical romance, Connie of Woodmere has just married Fred of Newark, but her exes are back in the picture and not sure they approve of the union. Mary of Greenpoint climbs Frankie of Little Italy's fire escape with amorous erotic intent -- but things go awry as she reaches for her dream.

The creative team will include David Korins (scenic design), Laura Bauer (costume design), Donald Holder (lighting design), Brian Ronan (sound design), Devanand Janki (musical staging), and August Eriksmoen (orchestrations).
