Directed by Daniel Sullivan (Proof, Rabbit Hole), the production will play MTC's Broadway home at the Biltmore Theatre (soon to be renamed the Samuel J. Friedman). Previews will begin at the Biltmore April 7, 2009, with an official opening scheduled for April 29.

Accent on Youth, a Broadway comedy from the 1934-35 season, is described by MTC as such: "Successful playwright Stephen Gaye (Pierce) is about to abandon his latest script, when his young secretary offers him new inspiration. With her as his muse, he stages the show on Broadway, only to learn, to his dismay, that the show's young leading man is being inspired by her too."

Additional casting will be announced shortly.
