According to a production spokesperson, Stanek joins the previously announced Jenn Colella, Mary Faber, Harriett D. Foy, Andy Karl, David Josefsberg and Kevin Pariseau. Slut will begin performances Sept. 13 at the American Theatre of Actors with an official opening set for Oct. 1.

Written by Stephen Sislen and Ben Winters, Slut will feature direction by Gordon Greenberg, who recently helmed the acclaimed production of The Baker's Wife at the Paper Mill Playhouse.

Slut is described as "a wholesome new musical set in the east village and around the globe starring the charismatic, handsome Adam; his best friend, the shy and brilliant Doctor Dan; and the sexy rocker Delia who comes between them. Surrounded by a cast of hundreds (played by 5) this highly improbable, irreverent show comes with singing, dancing, screwing, and raspberry margaritas."

Slut played the New York International Fringe Festival in summer 2003. It was the first show in the festival ever to sell out its entire run before the festival opened.

The creative team for the upcoming production includes Beowulf Boritt (scenic design) and Annie Kennedy (costume design). The musical is being presented by James Hammerstein Productions. On Broadway Jim Stanek has been seen in The Rivals, Little Women, Indiscretions and Forum.
