Previews began at Off-Broadway's Rattlestick Playwrights Theater April 13. The cast comprises Bobby Cannavale, Jason Butler Harner, Jackie Hoffman, Sarah Paulson and Ben Rappaport.

In The Gingerbread House, "Brian and Stacey want a better life, the life they deserve. But what they're willing to do to get it will destroy their family, rip them apart...and finally get them into the Club."

The design team features John McDermott (sets), Ben Stanton (lighting), Jessica Wegener (costumes), Zane Birdwell (sound) and Richard DiBella (video/projections).

Director Cabnet was recently named an associate artist of stageFARM. He staged the East Coast premiere of David Margulies' Shipwrecked! An Entertainment for the Long Wharf Theatre in 2008 and served as co-director for stageFARM's theme-centered evening of short plays, Spin, last fall.

Show times are Tuesday-Saturday at 8 PM and Sunday at 5 PM.

The Rattlestick Playwrights Theater is located at 224 Waverly Place. Tickets, priced $40, are available by visiting www.smarttix.com. For more information go to www.thestagefarm.org.
