Part of the company's "The Play's The Thing" radio theatre series, performances play Feb. 20-24 at the Skirball Cultural Center and are recorded for future broadcast.

Peter Levin directs the company, which features world-premiere cast members Rifkin ("Alias"), Harris and Radnor (both of "How I Met Your Mother") and Wettig ("thirtysomething") — from the 2004 run at Center Theatre Group's Kirk Douglas Theater. Glover ("Smallville"), who appeared in the Off-Broadway run (at The Roundabout Theatre Company's Laura Pels Theatre) of the Baitz work with Rifkin, also returns.

Baitz, known to television audiences for his show "Brothers & Sisters," penned The Paris Letter, which centers on "Wall Street powerhouse Sandy Sonenberg [who] finds his personal and professional life threatened by the unraveling secrets of his past. After burying his true sexual identity, a lethal affair with a young male associate forces Sonenberg to confront a lifetime of unrequited love and betrayal."

The season will continue with Geoffrey Cowan and Leroy Aarons' Top Secret: The Battle for the Pentagon Papers (March 12-16), Julie Marie Myatt's Boats on a River (April 9-13), Noël Coward's Tonight at 8:30 (May 12-18), Tennessee Williams' Summer and Smoke (June 18-22) and Neil Simon's Broadway Bound (July 9-13).
