The Signature Theatre revival of Stephen Adly Guirgis’ Our Lady of 121st Street has found its cast. The play follows the acclaimed, three-time extended Signature production of Guirgis’ Jesus Hopped the ‘A’ Train.

Previously announced Tony Award winner Phylicia Rashad will direct a cast made up of Joey Auzenne ( House of Cards), Obie Award winner Quincy Tyler Bernstine (The Amateurs), Erick Betancourt (Jesus Hopped the ‘A’ Train), Maki Borden (A 24-Decade History of Popular Music), Jimonn Cole (Peter and the Starcatcher), John Doman (The Wire), Dierdre Friel (Search Party), Hill Harper (The Good Doctor), Kevin Isola (Billions), Stephanie Kurtzuba (The Good Wife), Paola Lázaro (To the Bone), and John Procaccino (Incident at Vichy).

In Guirgis’ 2002 play, a group of former students return to their Harlem neighborhood to pay respects to the late Sister Rose. But at the funeral home, there's a problem—her dead body has been stolen.

Our Lady of 121st Street will begin performances Off-Broadway May 1 ahead of a May 20 opening night. Performances are scheduled in the Irene Diamond Stage through June 10.

The production will feature scenic design by Walt Spangler, costume design by Alexis Forte, lighting design Keith Parham, and sound design by Robert Kaplowitz. Charles M. Turner III is the production stage manager. Casting is by Caparelliotis Casting.
