A representative for the production confirmed to Playbill.com that director Alex Lippard is no longer part of the production. An uncredited creative consultant has been brought on board to polish the comedy in time for opening night.

Jeffrey Carlson (The Goat, Taboo, Stage Kiss), Angelica Page (August: Osage County, Side Man, "The Sixth Sense"), Obie Award winner Jan Leslie Harding (The Green Bird, A Lie of the Mind) and Laurence Lau (The Exonerated, "One Life to Live") star in the 90-minute production.

The Jan. 26-29 performances were canceled in order to allow the cast and creative team time to continue work on the play. Performances resumed Jan. 30 for a run through Feb. 25 as scheduled.

Here's how Psycho Therapy is billed: "Lily's fiancée Phillip blows off couples therapy and Dorian, her hot young ex-boyfriend, jumps in to fill the void. When the trio ends up on the couch together, only therapist Nancy Winston can untangle the kinks. Frank Strausser's insanely entertaining new comedy opens the door to a new option - couples therapy for three."

The production team includes Michael V. Moore (set designer), Amanda Bujak (costume designer), Amy Altadonna (sound designer), Jeff Croiter (lighting designer) and Allison Leyton-Brown (composer).

Tickets for Psycho Therapy, priced $66, can be purchased by calling (212) 352-3101 or by visiting psychotherapytheplay.com. The Cherry Lane Theatre is located at 38 Commerce Street.
