As previously reported, Tony Award winner John Doyle (Sweeney Todd, Company, A Catered Affair) will helm the drama that explores the resilience of the human spirit. Wings will officially open Oct. 24 and run through Nov. 21.

Heller (Caroline, or Change; A Class Act) completes a cast that also features Teagle F. Bougere, Beth Dixon, January LaVoy, Anne L. Nathan and Michael Warner. As previously reported, Maxwell (The Royal Family, Coram Boy, Lend Me a Tenor) will star as stroke victim Emily Stilson.

Here's how Second Stage bills the work: "Arthur Kopit's 1978 Tony-nominated play, Wings, is a journey through the eye of Emily Stilson, a 1920s wingwalker who discovers her life's journey is a series of courageous adventures, proving that even when her mental self fails her, her daredevil spirit proves unflappable."

Wings will feature scenic design by Scott Pask, costume design by Ann Hould-Ward, lighting design by Jane Cox and projection design by Peter Nigrini.

Tickets are $75 and may be purchased by phoning (212) 246-4422 or (800) 766-6048 or online at 2ST. Second Stage Theatre is located at 305 W. 43rd Street.
