Lev Gorn will join the cast of Roundabout Theatre Company's world premiere production of Meghan Kennedy's Napoli, Brooklyn beginning Tuesday, July 25. Gorn will replace Michael Rispoli in the role of Nic Muscolino.

The cast also includes Shirine Babb as Celia Jones, Alyssa Bresnahan as Luda Muscolino, Juliet Brett as Connie Duffy, Jordyn DiNatale as Francesca Muscolino, Lilli Kay as Tina Muscolino, Elise Kibler as Vita Muscolino, and Erik Lochtefeld as Albert Duffy.

Napoli, Brooklyn is described as follows: "In 1960 Brooklyn, the Muscolinos have raised three proud and passionate daughters. But as the girls come of age in a rapidly changing world, their paths diverge — in drastic and devastating ways — from their parents' deeply traditional values. Despite their fierce love, each young woman harbors a secret longing that, if revealed, could tear the family apart. When an earth-shattering event rocks their Park Slope neighborhood, life comes to a screeching halt and the Muscolino sisters are forced to confront their conflicting visions for the future."

The creative team is made up of Eugene Lee (sets), Jane Greenwood (costumes), Ben Stanton (lights), and Fitz Patton (sound). The production runs through September 3 at the Laura Pels Theatre at the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre.
