The Broadway revival of Wasserstein's Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize-winning play will feature "Mad Men" star Elisabeth Moss, Jason Biggs, Tony nominee Bryce Pinkham and Tracee Chimo.

In The Heidi Chronicles, a feminist art historian and her friends — male and female, gay and straight — mature from the 1960s-80s as they search for political, professional and personal fulfillment. Biggs (The Graduate) will play Scoop Rosenbaum, a writer who has a flirtatious friendship with Heidi, and Pinkham (Ghost the Musical) will play Peter Patrone, Heidi's gay best friend. Chimo will play the roles of Fran, Molly, Betsy and April.

Also in the cast are Ali Ahn as Susan Johnston, Leighton Bryan as Jill/Debbie/Lisa, Elise Kibler as Becky/Clara/Denise and Andy Truschinski as Chris Boxer/Mark/Waiter/Ray.

The original production also took home a 1989 Tony Award for Best Featured Actor in a Play (Boyd Gaines). Joan Allen, who starred as Heidi Holland, was Tony-nominated for her performance.
