Directed by Daniel Kutner, It Must Be Him officially opened on Sept. 1, following previews that began Aug. 24, and will run through Sept. 26.
According to the producers, "In It Must Be Him, Louie Wexler (Scolari), a whiz kid comedy writer from the heyday of variety television, is now down on his luck. With his devoted agent (Egan), and his considerably less devoted housekeeper (Torres) by his side, Louie finds himself broke, lonely, and on the wrong side of middle age. Desperate to rekindle his fading career, save his posh Beverly Hills home and find the man of his dreams, Louie searches high and low for one last shot at his own real-life happy ending."
The cast features three-time Emmy Award nominee Scolari (of TV's "Bosom Buddies," Broadway's Hairspray, Sly Fox) and Emmy Award and Golden Globe Award nominee Torres, along with Patrick Cummings (Happiness), Tony Award nominee D'Abruzzo (Avenue Q), Harris Doran (Love Jerry), Ryan Duncan (Altar Boyz), Egan (The Producers), Tony nominee Kaplan (Falsettos), Bob Ari (Bells Are Ringing), Tony Award nominee Playten (Henry, Sweet Henry), Edward Staudenmayer (Martin Short: Fame Becomes Me) and Jessica Tyler Wright (Sweeney Todd). The previously announced David Margulies was replaced by Ari.
