As previously reported, Jo Bonney (Some Girl(s), Fat Pig) will direct the world-premiere drama, which will officially open Nov. 22 and run through Dec. 12 at the Lucille Lortel Theatre. Tickets for the MCC production are now on sale.

A co-production with the Geffen Playhouse, Break of Noon will arrive in Los Angeles January 2011.

Jelks (Radio Golf) and Chimo (Circle Mirror Transformation) join the previously announced Peet (Barefoot in the Park) and Duchovny ("Californication, "X-Files") for the drama about a man who sees the face of God during a gruesome office shooting and becomes a modern-day prophet.

"Amidst the chaos and horror of the worst office shooting in American history, John Smith sees the face of God," read MCC notes. "His modern-day revelation creates a maelstrom of disbelief among everyone he knows. A newcomer to faith, John urgently searches for a modern response to the age-old question: at what cost salvation?"

LaBute's plays include Reasons to Be Pretty, New Testament, Helter Skelter, Second of Pleasure, The Mercy Seat, The Distance From Here, In a Dark Dark House, Autobahn, bash: latter-day plays, The Shape of Things, and the films "In the Company of Men," "Your Friends and Neighbors," "Nurse Betty," "Possession" and "Wicker Man."
