Signature Theatre has announced casting for its upcoming production of Simon Stephens's Heisenberg, directed by Joe Calarco, running September 18-November 11 in Signature's ARK Theatre.

Heisenberg tells the story of a chance encounter at a London train stop that changes the course Georgie's and Alex's lives. After mistaking him for someone else, Georgie finds herself improbably drawn to the much older Alex. The production will star Michael Russotto (Signature's Art) as Alex and Rachel Zampelli (Signature's The Gulf) as Georgie.

Heisenberg had its world premiere at Manhattan Theatre Club's Stage II in 2015, followed by a Broadway transfer in 2016, starring Denis Arndt and Mary-Louise Parker.

The creative team for the Signature production includes scenic design by Pamela Weiner, lighting design by Andrew Cissna, costume design by Alison Samantha Johnson, sound design by Kenny Neal, production stage manager Karen Currie, and production assistant Sophia Lewin Adams.
