Christine Baranski, who was set to star in Theatre for a New Audience's spring production of Antony and Cleopatra, has withdrawn from the production due to schedule conflicts. No replacement has been named.

TFANA's 2007-2008 season will begin with Adrienne Kennedy's Ohio State Murders, to be directed by Evan Yionoulis, October 27-November 18. Lisa Gay Hamilton, whose stage credits include The Piano Lesson and Gem of the Ocean, will portray Suzanne Alexander, a fictional African-American writer who enters Ohio State University in the 1950s, unaware that the school conceals forces of racism.

Daniel Breaker, last seen in Passing Strange, will star in the U.S. premiere of Ooronko, directed by Kate Whoriskey, February 2-March 9. Biyi Bandele has adapted Aphra Behn's novella, based on the tales told by African slaves brought over by the Dutch.

The season will conclude with William Shakespeare's Antony and Cleopatra. The production, to run March 22-May 2, will be directed by Darko Tresnjak.
