Associate artistic director Jeremy B. Cohen has also been named to direct the stage adaptation of The 39 Steps. Dates of production have not been announced.

As previously reported, the musical Sheila's Day, by Mbongeni Ngema, Ebony Jo-Ann, Duma Ndlovu and Ricardo Khan, will launch the season July 22-Aug. 15.

Also on the bill are the world premiere of Michael Kramer's Divine Rivalry, August Wilson's Gem of the Ocean and A Christmas Carol.
