As previously reported, Tony Award winner Joe Mantello (Other Desert Cities, Take Me Out) will helm the thriller, which will begin performances March 11 at the Lucille Lortel Theatre Off-Broadway towards a March 28 official opening.

In addition to Metcalf (November, A Lie of the Mind) and Boutsikaris (Amadeus, Sight Unseen), the cast will include Aya Cash (Offices) and John Schiappa (Women on the Verge, Assassins).

Here's how MCC bills the premiere: "Just as Juliana Smithton’s (Metcalf) research leads to a potential breakthrough in Alzheimer treatment drugs, her life takes a disorienting turn. During a lecture to colleagues at an exclusive beach resort, she glimpses an enigmatic young woman in a yellow bikini amidst the crowd of business suits. One step at a time, a mystery unravels as contradictory evidence, blurred truth and fragmented memories collide in a cottage on the windswept shores of Cape Cod."

White's plays include Sunlight, Six Years, Iris Fields, Satellites of the Sun and The Escape Velocity of Savages.

The Other Place will run through April 24. For tickets, phone (212) 279-4200 or visit TicketCentral. The Lucille Lortel Theatre is located at 121 Christopher Street.
