Joining the previously announced stars John Lithgow, Dianne Wiest, Patrick Wilson and Katie Holmes in the morality play set in post-World War II America will be Becky Ann Baker, Christian Camargo, Jordan Gelber and Danielle Ferland.

Additional casting and creative team will be announced shortly.

Arthur Miller's first successful play, All My Sons won the Tony Award for the author in 1947 and ran for 328 performances on Broadway. According to production notes, "Miller took his inspiration from a true story about a successful business man [Lithgow] who knowingly sold the government defective airplane parts during World War II with tragic consequences. The truth comes out and his life unravels when his son [Wilson] prepares to marry his business partner's daughter [Holmes]." Wiest plays the patriarch's wife.

Produced by Eric Falkenstein and directed by Simon McBurney, the production will have its official opening on Oct. 16 and will play a limited engagement through Sunday, Jan. 11, 2009.

Baker (Broadway's Assassins, Titanic, A Streetcar Named Desire, The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas) will play Sue Bayliss; Camargo (Henry V and Timon of Athens at the New York Shakespeare Festival, Broadway's Skylight) will play George Deever; Jordan Gelber (Broadway's Avenue Q) will play Frank Lubey; Ferland (Broadway's original Little Red in Into the Woods) will play Lydia Lubey.
