Jenn Colella (High Fidelity, Urban Cowboy) stars in the title role of the production, which also includes Marin Ireland, David Greenspan, Carolyn Baeumler, Autumn Dornfeld and Bill Dawes. Beebo Brinker tells the story of Laura and Beth, former college lovers whose paths diverged as one moved to New York and one opted for the domestic life. According to press notes, "Both pine for each other, but before they can reunite, they find themselves entangled in the web of Beebo Brinker, a butch denizen of the bars with a soft spot for young lesbians fresh off the bus."

The show officially opens March 5 at Manhattan's 37 Arts, located at 450 West 37th Street.

Tickets and further information are available at beebobrinker.com.
