Directed by Amanda Charlton, performances will continue through Aug. 16. The cast features Will Lebow (Sheer Madness), Matt McGrath (Cabaret, "Boys Don't Cry"), Lea Thompson ("Back to the Future," Cabaret, "Caroline in the City") and Brenda Wehle (Come Back, Little Sheba, Pygmalion).

"Caroline is down and out in New Jersey," according to press notes. "She's having a nervous breakdown, her career as an actress is tragically dwindling, and a peculiar stranger has made his presence known in her new apartment. Can she find a way to conquer it all? This funny and touching new play follows one woman's whole-hearted attempt to accept the past and take hold of the future, despite the many surprises that might pop up along the way."

Caroline in Jersey has set design by Andrew Boyce, costume design by Emily Rebholz, lighting design by Jake DeGroot, sound design by Bart Fasbender and original music by Kyle Jarrow.
