Complete casting has been announced for the Second Stage Theatre presentation of the Atlantic Theater Company's production of Between Riverside and Crazy by Stephen Adly Guirgis. This remounting of Austin Pendleton's production will begin January 16, with opening night set for February 11.

The full cast will include Ron Cephas Jones (Of Mice of Men) and Michael Rispoli (Between Riverside and Crazy at ATC), who join previously announced original company members Stephen McKinley Henderson, Victor Almanzar, Elizabeth Canavan, Rosal Colón, and Liza Colón-Zayas.

As he did at ATC, Stephen McKinley Henderson heads the cast as Walter "Pops" Washington, an ex-cop struggling to hold on to one of the last great rent-stabilized apartments in Manhattan while dealing with sketchy house guests, a recently paroled son, and a church lady who won't go away.

Between Riverside and Crazy features scenic design by Walt Spangler, costume design by Alexis Forte, lighting design by Keith Parham, and sound design and original music by Ryan Rumery. Guirgis received the Steinberg Distinguished Playwright Award for the dark comedy, which began performances at the Atlantic on July 31 and ran through August 23.
