As previously announced, the cast will be led by Maxwell Caulfield (Chicago, An Inspector Calls, "Grease 2") and Lois Robbins (“Ryan’s Hope”) with Anthony Reimer (“Rescue Me”), John Herrera (The Times, They are a Changin’), Robin Skye (Parade) and Jeremy Bobb (Is He Dead?).

New additions to the cast include Jenni Barber (From Up Here, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee) as Toni and Emily Walton (August: Osage County).

Producers are Daryl Roth Productions and Stonehill Productions.

Cactus Flower, according to press notes, tells the story of "Julian Winston (Caulfield), a handsome, middle-aged Park Avenue dentist and bachelor, who, to dodge commitment, tells his much younger girlfriend Toni (Barber) that he is married. When Toni demands to meet his wife he recruits his prickly nurse (Robbins) to play the part and love blossoms in the most unexpected places!"

The creative team includes scenic designer Anna Louizos, lighting designer Philip Rosenberg, costume designer Karen Ann Ledger and sound designer Brad Berridge.

Cactus Flower premiered on Broadway in December 1965, where it played 1,234 performances and starred Lauren Bacall. Gene Zaks later directed a 1969 film adaptation, which introduced Goldie Hawn on the big screen and also starred Walter Matthau and Ingrid Bergman.

Tickets, priced $75, are now on sale by visiting Telecharge.com, by calling  (212) 239-6200, or, beginning Jan. 25, in person at the Westside Theatre box office (407 West 43 Street).
