Maria Dizzia to Join Cast of Leslye Headland's The Layover
The production runs at Second Stage Theatre.
Drama Desk Award nominee Maria Dizzia (Belleville) will join the cast of Leslye Headland's The Layover at Second Stage Theatre beginning September 6. Dizzia replaces Annie Parisse, who departs the role of Shellie on September 4 to begin shooting the new Netflix series Friends From College.
The play follows Shellie and Dex, a pair of strangers on a delayed flight, as they attempt to discover the stories and secrets each is hiding. The Layover reunites Headland with director Trip Cullman, who previously collaborated on the hit Second Stage Uptown production of Bachelorette in 2010, and the Playwrights Horizons production of Assistance in 2012. Headland is also the author of the film version of Bachelorette, About Last Night, and Sleeping With Other People.
The company also includes Quincy Dunn-Baker (Draft Day), Arica Himmel, Annie Parisse (Antlia Pneumatica), John Procaccino (Our Mother's Brief Affair), Adam Rothenberg (Danny and the Deep Blue Sea), and Amelia Workman (The Shipment).
