Carson Elrod, Norm Lewis, Bebe Neuwirth, Kristine Nielsen, Ken Page, Laila Robins, and Derek Smith will complete the cast of Noël Coward's Tonight at 8:30, a sold-out benefit for Red Bull Theater on October 15 at Symphony Space.

As previously announced, the cast will also include Rosemary Harris, Nick Choksi, Joanna Gleason, Mark Linn-Baker, Chessa Metz, Talene Monahon, Brad Oscar, Chris Sarandon, Jeanine Serralles, Mary Testa, Raphael Nash Thompson, and Michael Urie. Jesse Berger will direct the production, with music direction by Greg Pliska.

Tonight at 8:30 comprises three short plays: Red Peppers, described by Coward as "a vaudeville sketch sandwiched in between two parodies of music hall songs"; Shadow Play: A Musical Fantasy, a surreal love story between a married couple and their younger selves; and Ways and Means, a madcap comedy about a young couple on the make.
