The New Jersey Star-Ledger reports that the three-character play will run at the South Orange venue Nov. 4-20. Carl Wallnau will play choreographer Tobi Powell, the role created on Broadway by Tony Award winner Frank Langella. Dreamcatcher will also present Suzanne Bradbeer's Full Bloom April 28-May 14, 2006. Performances at the theatre are Fridays and Saturdays at 8 PM with matinees Sundays at 2 PM.

Match is set "on a crisp winter afternoon, [when] Mike and Lisa Davis arrive at the home of Tobi Powell to interview him about his past as a renowned choreographer. Tobi welcomes the couple with wine and witty stories of his colorful life. But as the evening unfolds, it becomes clear that this is no ordinary visit. A startling secret is uncovered and truths are revealed that will change them all forever." The Broadway cast included Langella, Ray Liotta and Jane Adams.
