As previously announced, Nicholas Martin will direct the Roundabout Theatre Company production. Four-time Tony nominee Victor Garber will star; no other casting has been announced.

Martin also directed Garber in the Coward comedy at Boston's Huntington Theatre.

According to Roundabout, "At the center of his own universe sits matinee idol Garry Essendine (Victor Garber). While Garry struggles to plan his upcoming trip to Africa, his elegant London flat is invaded by a love struck ingénue, an adulterous producer and a married seductress, not to mention Garry's estranged wife and a crazed young playwright. Just before Garry escapes, the full extent of his misdemeanors is discovered and all hell breaks loose."

Known for his work on "Eli Stone," "Alias" and "Justice," Victor Garber has appeared on Broadway in Deathtrap, Sweeney Todd, Arcadia, Art, Noises Off, Damn Yankees, Little Me, You Never Can Tell, Lend Me A Tenor and Two Shakespearean Actors and Off-Broadway in Assassins, Love Letters, Wenceslas Square and Ghost. Other credits include the films "Titanic," "Sleepless in Seattle," "Legally Blonde" and the TV versions of "Annie" and "The Music Man." Garber was recently seen in the City Center Encores! production of Follies.
