Cochran won an Obie for her achingly realistic portrayal. On the same day Buddeke arrives, Jonno Roberts (Take Me Out) will replace Paul Sparks as paranoid loner Peter, and Troy West will be take over the role of the ambiguously benevolent Dr. Sweet from Michael Canavan. Remaining with the cast are Michael Cullen as Agnes' violent Ex, Goss, and Dee Pelletier as Agnes' lesbian pal RC. Cullen is the only holdover from the original New York cast.

The show began on Feb. 26 at the Barrow Street Theatre. The open-ended run received some of the best reviews of the season and went on to collect four Lucille Lortel Awards including Best Play and Best Direction and OBIE Awards for both the Ensemble and the Design Team.

Scott Morfee's co-produces with Amy Danis and Mark Johannes.
