Woodruff will direct the production, which stars co-adapter and Obie-winning actor Camp as the Underground Man. Notes officially opens March 26 and runs through April 11. Joining Camp will be Notes from Underground's sound designer-composer Michaël Attias as Apollon and Merritt Janson as Liza. Both Attias and Janson will perform the original compositions during the production.

"'I am a sick man...I am a wicked man,' cries the Underground Man, one of modern literature's first, and most remarkable, antiheros. A former government official who has defiantly withdrawn from a corrupt society, the Underground Man wages his own personal war on everything-and everyone-around him. Laugh-out-loud funny and terrifying, Notes from Underground is the passionate, obsessive, and contradictory confession of a tormented soul," press notes state.

Designing the work are David Zinn (scenic design), Moria Sine Clinton (costume design) and Mark Barton (lighting design).
