Written and directed by Tony and Pulitzer Prize nominee Craig Lucas, the cast will feature Erbe ("Law & Order: Criminal Intent," Speed of Darkness), Roxanna Hope (Frost/Nixon, After the Fall) and Arliss Howard ("Moneyball," Joe Turner's Come And Gone).

The production will officially open Feb. 27 for a run through March 30.

Here's how the show is billed: "Ode to Joy tells the story of love, heartbreak, addiction, and illness through the eyes of Adele, an audacious painter and her destructive relations with Mala and Bill, her two lovers."

The creative team includes Andrew Boyce (set design), Catherine Zuber (costume design), Paul Whitaker (lighting design) and Daniel Kluger (sound design). 

Lucas' writing credits include Prelude to a Kiss, Prayer for My Enemy and Reckless, as well the scripts for Marry Me a Little, Songs by Stephen Sondheim, Three Postcards and The Light in the Piazza. He also penned the Broadway aimed musical King Kong, as well as an upcoming Broadway adaptation of An American in Paris.
