Second Stage artistic associate (and Bogosian's wife) Jo Bonney — who has helmed A Soldier’s Play and Living Out for the company — directs an updated production of the play at the midtown venue through Oct. 29. Opening night is slated for Sept. 28.
In subUrbia, Bogosian takes an anti-utopian look into the lives of seven youths who meet at the parking lot of a Pakistani-owned convenience store. The work, which debuted in 1994 at Lincoln Center, returns to New York more than a decade later.
The new cast of subUrbia will feature Diksha Basu (Harvest), Jessica Capshaw (Fat Pig, "The Practice"), Kieran Culkin (After Ashley, "Igby Goes Down") Michael Esper (Manic Flight Reaction, Big Bill), Halley Feiffer (Urgent Fury, "The Squid and the Whale"), Gaby Hoffmann (Third, "You Can Count On Me"), Daniel Eric Gold (The Paris Letter, Small Tragedy, Cagelove), Manu Narayan (Bombay Dreams, Getting Home) and Peter Scanavino (Shining City, The Moonlight Room).
The design team will include Richard Hoover(scenic), Mimi O'Donnell (costume), David Weiner (lighting) and Rob Kaplowitz (sound).
Kelli Garner, a recent Off-Broadway newcomer who appeared in Dog Sees God..., was previously announced to play the role of Sooze in the production, but had to withdraw due to a conflict with her filming schedule for "Lars and the Real Girl." The actress has previously been seen on the big screen in "The Aviator" and "Thumbsucker" among other films. The new 2006-2007 season at Second Stage will also include Theresa Rebeck's The Scene (Dec. 12-Feb. 4, 2007) and Terrence McNally's Some Men (Feb. 23-April 15, 2007) as well as a spring production yet to be announced.
