The New Group has announced full casting for its upcoming production of Hamish Linklater's The Whirligig. It will run May 2-June 11, with opening night May 21, at the Pershing Square Signature Center.

Two-time Tony winner Norbert Leo Butz (Bloodline) heads the company alongside Golden Globe winner Maura Tierney (The Affair) and Zosia Mamet (Girls). They will be joined by Noah Bean, Jon DeVries, Alex Hurt, Jonny Orsini, and Grace Van Patten. The creative team includes Derek McLane (scenic design), Clint Ramos (costume design), Jeff Croiter (lighting design), and ML Dogg (sound design).

The play is described as follows: "When, after much time away, Kristina is back in Berkshire County, word spreads fast that she and her ex-husband Michael are caring for their estranged, ailing daughter Julie. Brokenhearted and giddy with love and confusion, surprising visitors from Julie's complicated past practically trip over each other to reach the young woman they thought they'd lost years before but still feel so deeply connected to."
