Steve Campo will direct the production that runs through March 7. An official opening has been set for Jan. 29.
TheaterWorks press notes read: "For decades, renowned advice columnist Ann Landers answered countless letters from lovelorn teens, confused couples and a multitude of others. No topic was off-limits, including housekeeping in-the-buff, making love in a motorcycle helmet, the proper way to hang toilet paper, addiction, religion and wandering spouses. In this comic tour-de-force we learn as much about ourselves as we do about the wise, funny, no-nonsense woman whose dialogue with America helped shape the social landscape of the last half-century."
Booker appeared on Broadway in Born Yesterday and Off-Broadway in Fugue. She was part of the TheaterWorks production of Our Town and has appeared on screen in "Law and Order," "Third Watch" and "Chicago Hope."
The Lady With All the Answers will have set design by Adrian W. Jones, lighting design by Maro Jo Dondlinger and costume design by Kenneth Mooney.
