The productions, running in repertory Jan. 19, 2012-Feb. 5 at The SoHo Playhouse, will be offered individually or in "marathon" days.

Mallory Berlin will star as Nora in the musical version with Kymberly Tuttle as Nora in the Henrik Ibsen classic.

Beautiful Soup founder and artistic director Steven Carl McCasland will direct the musical, which features musical direction by Jeremy Robin Lyons. The cast also includes Mario Castro, Joseph da Fonseca, Thomas Dolan, Jonathan Grunert, Anna Kirkland, Alex Pagels, Jordan Shaner, Rebecca Shorstein, Lisa Crosby Wipperling and Tal Yardeni.

Cristina Carrion directs Ibsen's A Doll's House, which also stars Patrick Pizzolorusso as Torvald Helmer as well as Seth Koproski and Thomas Leverton.

The 1982 musical A Doll's Life features a score by Larry Grossman, with book and lyrics by Betty Comden and Adolph Green. The notorious flop, which closed after 18 previews and 5 performances, was directed by Hal Prince and starred Betsy Joslyn, George Hearn and Peter Gallagher. The musical, according to press notes, "begins with Nora's infamous doorslam as she leaves Torvald Helmer and chronicles her journey after marriage." Despite its failure, the show received several Tony Award nominations, and an original cast recording was released on the Bay Cities label.
