Broadway's Seminar, the new play by Theresa Rebeck, got a new poison pen in the form of Jeff Goldblum starting on April 3. He succeeded Alan Rickman as a literary lion who judges the work of young novelists. Zoe Lister-Jones (The Little Dog Laughed) and Justin Long (TV's "Ed") also joined the troupe.
Rickman, Lily Rabe and Hamish Linklater exited the play following the April 1 matinee at the Golden Theatre. Lister-Jones succeeds Rabe as Kate, who organizes the group, and Long succeeds Linklater as unsure writer Martin.
