59E59 Theaters has announced that Jay Armstrong Johnson (On the Town) will contine in the role of Adam in The Mad Ones through December 3 while Ben Fankhauser (Newsies) remains on vocal rest. Fankhauser is set to return to the role on December 5. As previously announced, Johnson has taken on the role while the show's star is on doctor-imposed vocal rest.

Produced by Prospect Theater Company, The Mad Ones is written by Kait Kerrigan and Brian Lowdermilk, with direction by Stephen Brackett, choreography by Alexandra Beller, and music direction by Paul Staroba. The cast also features Krystina Alabado, Leah Hocking, and Emma Hunton.

The Mad Ones immerses audiences in the complex inner life of Samantha Brown — a young woman on the brink of change. Sitting in her parent's driveway, Samantha faces a choice: Will she follow in her mother's footsteps, or take the dare of her impetuous best friend and chart a new path?

Performances are set to run through December 17 at 59E59 Theaters.
