The cast features Rosie Benton (Les Liaisons Dangereuses, Accent on Youth) as Beth, Morgan Spector (A View From The Bridge, The Lion King) as Hal, Robert Stanton (Coast Of Utopia, Mary Stuart) as Paul, Daniel Gerroll ("The Starter Wife," "Ugly Betty") as James and Gregory Wooddell (Cymbeline, Some Men) as Jonny. Dissonance, according to Bay Street, "centers around a professional string quartet in the midst of rehearsing for a once-in-a-lifetime performance at Carnegie Hall. As the quartet bickers, the history of their entangled relationships unfolds. Tensions heighten further as the only woman in the group has a chance meeting with a successful rock star."

Designing the production are Jim Noone (set design), Tracy Christensen (costume design), Kirk Bookman (lighting design) and Jill B.C. DuBoff (sound design).

Dissonance marks Lanigan's playwriting debut. He is a writer for the BBC and has penned several novels.

Price staged the New York Philharmonic presentations of Camelot, Sweeney Todd and Candide. Price has directed the Broadway productions of 110 in the Shade, Urban Cowboy, Sally Marr… and her escorts, as well as A Class Act in which he also starred. As an actor Price has appeared in Merrily We Roll Along, Burn This, Rags and Broadway. He is also slated to helm the revival of Neil Simon's The Sunshine Boys, starring Richard Benjamin and Elliott Gould. He staged a reading of the play for the Roundabout Theatre Company earlier this spring.

Performances continue through June 27. Tickets can be purchased by calling (631) 725-9500 or by visiting BayStreet.
