Anne Bogart directs the production that began previews Feb. 9 and opens March 4. Joining Tony Award winner Parker in the cast are Kathleen Chalfant, T. Ryder Smith, David Aaron Baker, Carla Harting and Kelly Maurer.

According to production notes, "Gordon is dead, but his cell phone lives on. When Jean (Parker), an empathetic museum worker, answers his ringing phone beside her in a café, she is soon playing unwitting comforter and confessor to the man's grieving friends and family. Before she knows it, Jean is ensnarled in the underbelly of the dead man's bizarre life."
