Ikeda plays Lady Nijo/Win. Reeder plays Dull/Gret/Nell. One more cast member will be named.

James Macdonald (Drunk Enough To Say I Love You?, A Number) directs the Broadway debut of this modern classic. Opening is set for May 7.

According to MTC, "At the Top Girls Employment Agency in London in the early 1980s, Marlene (Marvel) has just been appointed head of the firm. But as this ambitious career woman celebrates her achievements, can we applaud her values? This bold and ingenious work from the singularly talented author of Far Away and Cloud Nine offers one of the theatre's most honest portraits of what it means to be a woman in the modern world."

The creative team for Top Girls includes Tom Pye (scenic design), Laura Bauer (costume design), Christopher Akerlind (lighting design), Darron L West (sound design), Matthew Herbert (original music) and Elizabeth Smith (dialect consultant).
