Producer Kenwright has netted two stars, Judith Ivey and Annette Bening, for the production. Fallen Angels was seen in London in fall 2000, with Felicity Kendal and Frances de la Tour heading the cast. The play is about two women sitting, drinking and waiting for the same man. The New York Times once mentioned Mercedes Ruehl and Christine Baranski as casting possibilities.

Ivey is a theatre vet whose latest Broadway credit was the short-lived revival of Sondheim's Follies. Bening appeared on Broadway a decade and a half ago in Coastal Disturbances. Since then, she's been Hedda Gabler in Los Angeles, in a new adaptation of the Ibsen classic by Jon Robin Baitz which eventually came to Broadway with Kate Burton as its star.

Michael Rudman will direct. Paul Farnsworth will design.
