Primary Stages has announced the cast and design team for the New York premiere of Charles Grodin's The Right Kind of People at 59E59 Theaters.

The cast includes Doris Belack, Stephen Bradbury, Fred Burrell, Mitch Greenberg, Keith Jochim, Katherine Leask, Ed Owens, Robert Stanton, Evan Thompson and John C. Vennema. The production will be directed by Chris Smith and will feature set design by Annie Smart, lighting design by Russell Champa, sound design by Fabian Obispo, and costume design by Jenny Mannis.

The Right Kind of People sends up a fashionable Fifth Avenue co-op board, with issues of race, gender, and social status simmering just beneath the surface. Written by actor/talk show host Grodin, the play comes to Primary Stages following its world premiere at the Magic Theatre in San Francisco, where it was one of the highest grossing shows in the company's 37-year history.

Preview performances at 59E59 Theaters will begin on January 24, 2006. The production is scheduled to open officially on February 9 and to play a limited run through March 5.
