Emmy Award winner Michael Emerson (Lost) and theater vet January LaVoy (Signature Plays) will star in Signature Theatre's world premiere of Will Eno's Wakey, Wakey. Eno will also direct the work, which runs February 7-March 19 in the Alice Griffin Jewel Box Theatre at the Pershing Square Signature Center.

Wakey, Wakey is described as follows: "What are we here for? Is time a friend or an enemy? Do we all eventually end up in the same place, but take different routes to get there? This funny, moving, and thought-provoking new play…recognizes the importance of life's simple pleasures. (All of which might sound dreary, but there’s a chance this will be a really good experience.)"

The creative team includes Christine Jones (scenic design), Michael Krass (costume design), David Lander (lighting design), Nevin Steinberg (sound design), and Peter Nigrini (projection design).
