Lincoln Center Theater has announced casting for its upcoming production of Admissions, a new play by Joshua Harmon, directed by Daniel Aukin. The production will begin previews February 15 and open on March 12 at the Mitzi E. Newhouse Theater.

Ben Edelman (Significant Other), Andrew Garman (Salome), Jessica Hecht (The Price), Dana Ivey (The Importance of Being Earnest), and Sally Murphy (August: Osage County) will be featured in the cast.

In Admissions, Sherri Rosen-Mason (Hecht) is head of the admissions department at The Hillcrest School, fighting to diversify the student body. And alongside her husband (Garman), the school's Headmaster, they've largely succeeded in bringing a stodgy institution into the 21st century. But when their only son (Edelman) sets his sights on an Ivy League university, personal ambition collides with progressive values.

The show will have sets by Riccardo Hernandez, costumes by Toni-Leslie James, lighting by Mark Barton, and sound by Ryan Rumery.
