59E59 Theaters has announced that Jay Armstrong Johnson (On the Town) will continue in the role of Adam in The Mad Ones through through the end of the show's run on December 17. Ben Fankhauser, who had been announced to play the role but was placed on doctor-imposed vocal rest, will not join the cast as initially planned.

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?
