Primary Stages presents the New York premiere that began previews March 18 at the 59E59 Theaters. Carolyn Cantor directs the limited run scheduled through April 26.
With Something You Did, Holtzman (Sabina) pens a drama that centers on "a notorious sixties radical who has served nearly 30 years in prison for her part in the accidental killing of an African-American police officer during an explosive war protest. Now she is eligible for parole in a post 9/11 world where bombing is terrorism and dissent is treason."
Joining Gleason and fellow Tony winner Lenox (Doubt) on stage are Jordan Charney (Hearts), Portia (Our Lady of 121st Street) and Victor Slezak (Beauty on the Vine).

Gleason, who earned her Tony for Into the Woods, was last seen on Broadway in Dirty Rotten Scoundrels — for which she earned her third Tony nomination (her first nod was for Joe Egg). Other credits include I Love My Wife, The Real Thing, Social Security, Nick and Nora, The Normal Heart, It's Only a Play and Eleemosynary. On film she has been seen in "Hannah and Her Sisters," "Crimes and Misdemeanors," "Boogie Nights" and "Mr. Holland's Opus." This production completes the Off-Broadway troupe's current season. Primary Stages already announced its 24th season, which will include the New York premieres of A.R. Gurney's Buffalo Gal, Lee Blessing's A Body of Water and Donald Margulies's Shipwrecked! An Entertainment — The Amazing Adventures of Louis de Rougemont (As Told By Himself) as well as the world premiere of Tina Howe's Chasing Manet. The company will again present at 59E59 Theaters.
