Directed by Laura Braza, the cast features Broadway vet Dennis Parlato in the role of the menacing but comedic father. Parlato's numerous credits include Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, The Sound of Music and A Chorus Line. An official opening night is set for July 30.

The cast also features Lauren Nicole Cipoletti (Macbeth at CSC) and Shane Patrick Kearns ("Peter and John").

Writer and director Shanley is the recipient of the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award for Best Play for Doubt as well as an Oscar-winning screenwriter for Moonstruck. He also penned the screenplay to the film adaptation of Doubt, starring Meryl Streep and Philip Seymour Hoffman. Playbill.com recently announced the world premiere of his latest work, Prodigal Son, at MTC Theatre Off-Broadway in January 2016.
