Frank Langella and Ray Liotta remain as the show's two other stars. Adams first attracted attention in Paul Rudnick's I Hate Hamlet. She later won a Tony Award for An Inspector Calls.

Tickets for Match went on sale to the general public Feb. 15.

Frank Langella will play a Juilliard dance teacher in Belber's Match, which concerns the impact one's choices have on others. The Araca Group will produce, and Nicholas Martin will direct. The creative team will also include set design by James Noone, costume design by Michael Krass, lighting design by Brian MacDevitt and sound design by Kurt Kellenberger and Jerry Yager.

According to a production statement, Match is set "on a crisp winter afternoon, [when] Mike and Lisa Davis arrive at the home of Tobi Powell to interview him about his past as a renowned choreographer. Tobi welcomes the couple with wine and witty stories of his colorful life. But as the evening unfolds, it becomes clear that this is no ordinary visit. A startling secret is uncovered and truths are revealed that will change them all forever." The playwright's other titles include Tape, A Small, Melodramatic Story, The Death of Frank and The Transparency of Val.

Match plays at the Plymouth Theatre with an official opening scheduled for April 8.
