Two-time Tony Award winner Norbert Leo Butz will star opposite Emmy Award nominee Elizabeth Reaser in Second Stage Theatre's revival of Paula Vogel's Pulitzer Prize-winning play, How I Learned to Drive, January 24-March 11, with an opening on February 13. Kate Whoriskey will direct.

The play explores the complex relationship between Li'l Bit (Reaser) and her Uncle Peck (Butz), as a series of driving lessons progresses from innocence to something much darker.

Butz won Tonys for his work in Catch Me If You Can and Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, with other Broadway credits including Enron, Speed-the-Plow, Is He Dead?, Wicked , Thou Shalt Not, and Rent.

Reaser was Emmy-nominated for her guest appearance on Grey's Anatomy and received a 2007 Independent Spirit Award nomination for Best Actress for her role in the drama, Sweet Land. She is well known for her role as the matriarch of the Cullen clan in the popular Twilight films.
