Joining Moss and co-stars Jason Biggs, Tony nominee Bryce Pinkham and Tracee Chimo 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.

Directed by Pam MacKinnon, who won a 2013 Tony Award for her revival of Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, the production will begin performances Feb. 23 at the Music Box Theatre.

The production marks the first Broadway revival of Wasserstein's play, which closed in 1990. 

The acclaimed work will officially open March 19.

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.

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.

The Heidi Chronicles was first produced by Playwrights Horizons in 1988 before moving to Broadway, winning the Pulitzer Prize, the Tony Award, the New York Drama Critics Circle Award, the Outer Critics Circle Award, the Drama Desk Award, the Hull-Warriner Award and the Susan Smith Blackburn Prize.

The production will feature scenic design by John Lee Beatty, costume design by Jessica Pabst, lighting design by Japhy Weideman, sound design by Jill BC Du Boff, projection design by Peter Nigrini and hair and make-up design by Leah J. Loukas. Casting is by Daniel Swee.

The producers are led by Jeffrey Richards, Jerry Frankel, Susan Gallin and Mary Lu Roffe.

Tickets are available at Telecharge.com, by calling (212) 239-6200, or by visiting the box office of the Music Box Theatre (239 West 45th St).
