Production sources at the Roundabout Theatre Company confirm they are working with actor Roger Rees to mount George Bernard Shaw's Arms and the Man in February at the Gramercy Theatre, Roundabout's temporary home. Rees would direct the project.
Rees was added to the cast of Roundabout's Uncle Vanya last week. That show is scheduled to be the first production at the nonprofit's new home, the former Selwyn Theatre.
Construction schedules at the Selwyn site have pushed the Vanya opening back to April. Work at the former Selwyn continues.
Roundabout confirmed press reports that another show would go into the Gramercy if Rees and the company are unable to put together a satisfactory cast.
