David Aaron Baker, Carla Harting, and Kelly Maurer will join previously announced stars Mary-Louise Parker, Bill Camp, and Kathleen Chalfant in the Playwrights Horizons’ production of Sarah Ruhl’s Dead Man Cell’s Phone. The show, which will be directed by Anne Bogart, begins previews on February 8 and opens officially on March 4.
The play, which premiered at D.C.’s Woolly Mammoth Theatre, concerns a woman (Parker) who answers a ringing cell phone that belongs to Gordon (Camp), a dead man, and then gets involved with his mother (Chalfant) and his friends.
The show’s creative team includes G.W. Mercier (sets and costumes). Brian Scott (lighting), and Darron L. West (sound). Ruhl is the author of Eurydice, Passion Play: A Cycle and The Clean House, among other plays. Bogart is the artistic director of SITI Company.
