A replacement actress for the lead role of Jane will be announced shortly. Previews begin Nov. 6 for an opening of Dec. 2. The run ends Dec. 13. Directed by Daniel Aukin ([sic] and eight seasons as artistic director of SoHo Rep), the world-premiere production will play Playwrights Horizons' Mainstage Theater on West 42nd Street.

The cast continues to feature Obie Award winner Eisa Davis (Passing Strange, seen last in her own play Angela's Mix Tape as part of the Hip-Hop Theater Festival), Glenn Fitzgerald (Lortel nomination for Lobby Hero at Playwrights Horizons, Brian Darling on ABC's "Dirty Sexy Money") and Louis Cancelmi (The Singing Forest, Blasted).

According to Off-Broadway's Playwrights Horizons, "In This, Jane is not okay. She's a promising poet without a muse, a single mother without lessons to pass along. Her dating life's a shambles, and her helpful friends are only helping make things more complicated. This bright, witty, un-romantic comedy captures the uncertain steps of a circle of friends backing their way into middle age."
