Lincoln Center Theater announced the latest installment in their Platform Series, tied to the off-Broadway premiere of Joshua Harmon's new play Admissions: a free pre-performance talk between Harmon and the production's director, Daniel Aukin, in the lobby of the Vivian Beaumont Theater on Wednesday, March 7, at 6pm. Admissions is set to begin previews tomorrow, February 15, and open on March 12 at the Mitzi E. Newhouse Theater.

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

Ann McDonough and Sally Murphy round out the cast. The show will have sets by Riccardo Hernandez, costumes by Toni-Leslie James, lighting by Mark Barton, and sound by Ryan Rumery.
