Actor Marshall-Green withdrew from the play's New York premiere "due to a scheduling conflict," according to a release. A veteran of Adam Rapp plays, Stadelmann recently appeared in American Sligo and has also played in Stone Cold Dead Serious and Trueblinka. Other credits include Victoria Martin: Math Team Queen, Hot 'n' Throbbing and "Ed."

Sam Gold (The Black Eyed) will direct Rag and Bone, which is scheduled to begin previews Nov. 13 and open Nov. 20 for a run currently scheduled through Dec. 16.

Stadelmann joins a cast that will also feature Michael Chernus (American Sligo, Essential Self Defense), Kevin Jackson (Topdog/Underdog, Fences), Deidre O'Connell (Fugue, Stone Cold Dead Serious), Henry Stram (Inherit the Wind, The Crucible), Audrey Lynn Weston (Rearviewmirror, Work) and David Wohl (Fiddler on the Roof, Dinner at Eight).

In Rag and Bone, press notes state, "Jeff and George, mourning the death of their mother, struggle to make ends meet at the family ladder store, which George also utilizes as a front for the black market sale of human hearts."

The creative team includes Dane Laffrey (sets), Oana Botez-Ban (costumes), Ben Stanton (lights) and Eric Shim (sound). Christina Lowe serves as production stage manager with Heather Davidson as assistant stage manager.

The comedy made its world premiere in 2005 as part of the Long Wharf Theatre's New American Voices series. Tina Landau directed a cast that featured Annie Golden.

Tickets to Rag and Bone at Rattlestick Playwrights Theater, 224 Waverly Place (between West 11 & Perry St.), are available through (212) 868-4444. For more information visit rattlestick.org.
