"After terrific runs at George Street Playhouse and Guild Hall, Clever Little Lies hopes to have a terrific run in New York City," Playwright DiPietro told Playbill.com in August last year. "Marlo is a theatrical treasure, and her work in the play is extraordinary." Further casting is yet to be announced.

Marlo plays Alice, a mother who suspects hidden secrets when she notices that her husband is off-kilter after a tennis match with their son. As she searches for the truth, "hilarious and shattering chaos ensues," according to production notes.

Thomas has starring in four Broadway shows, most recently Relatively Speaking. The daughter of comedian Danny Thomas, she played the title character in the hit TV sitcom "That Girl" 1966-1971).

Tony winner DiPietro is a co-creator of the Tony-winning musical Memphis. His most recent Broadway play was Living on Love, which opened this past May.

Audience Rewards pre-sale tickets will be available Aug. 6. The Westside Theatre Upstairs is located at 407 West 43rd St., between 9th and 10th Ave.'s. For more information visit CleverLittleLies.
