Directed by Alex Kilgore, the visiting production at the Rattlestick Playwrights Theater will officially open April 18 at 8 PM. The cast will comprise Bobby Cannavale, Jason Butler Harner, Jackie Hoffman, Sarah Paulson and Ben Rappaport.

In The Gingerbread House, press notes state, "Brian and Stacey want a better life, the life they deserve. But what they're willing to do to get it will destroy their family, rip them apart...and finally get them into the Club."

Alex Kilgore, stageFARM's artistic director, said in a statement, "The Gingerbread House is timely, particularly in this economic climate, as a dark fairy tale of upward mobility and inverted priorities. It's as terrifying as it is hilarious. Mark's voice is revolutionary, his rhythm cut-throat, and his language sharp, spare, and deadly accurate."

The design team features John McDermott (sets), Ben Stanton (lighting), Jessica Wegener (costumes), Zane Birdwell (sound) and Richard DiBella (video/projections).

Show times are Tuesday-Saturday at 8 PM and Sunday at 5 PM.

The Rattlestick Playwrights Theater is located at 224 Waverly Place. Tickets, priced $40, are available by visiting www.smarttix.com. For more information go to www.thestagefarm.org.
