The show will begin previews Feb. 11 and open March 6. Direction and choreography will be by Graciela Daniele

Bernarda Alba is the story of "a newly-widowed mother (Rashad), who enforces her iron will on her large household, only to have her daughters (to be played by James, Murphy, Rubin-Vega and Santiago) overwhelm her tyranny."

The cast will also feature Yolande Bavan, Candy Buckley, Laura Shoop and Nancy Ticotin.

LaChiusa's Hello, Again and Marie Christine were produced at the nonprofit. Daniele has directed such LCT shows as LaChiusa's Marie Christine and Chronicle of a Death Foretold, as well as such Stephen Flaherty and Lynn Ahrens works as Once on This Island and the recent Dessa Rose.

The prolific LaChiusa enjoyed some of his best reviews in years for See What I Wanna See, now playing at the Public Theater.
