Leigh Silverman, who was nominated for a Tony Award last season for her direction of Violet, will helm the production, which will begin performances May 12, 2015, at Second Stage's Tony Kiser Theatre.

Maslany, in her New York stage debut, and Sadoski, known for his work on HBO's "The Newsroom" as well as his Tony-nominated performance in LaBute's reasons to be pretty, will respectively star as Beth and Doug: two people who have no problems getting dates with their partners of choice.

According to Second Stage, "What they do have, however, is a very awkward encounter after spending one hot night together following a drunken wedding reception they attend. They wake up to a blurry morning where the rules of attraction, sex and society are waiting for them before their first cup of coffee, leading them to ponder how much they really know about each other and how much they really care about what other people think. A world premiere from one of our most provocative storytellers, The Way We Get By is a play about love and lust and the whole damn thing."

Performances will continue through June 28, 2015.

The production will feature set design by Neil Patel, lighting design by Matthew Frey and sound design by Jill BC Du Boff. A costume designer will be announced at a later date, and casting is by Telsey + Co., Will Cantler.

Second Stage Theatre is under the artistic direction of co-founder Carole Rothman.

Second Stage's Tony Kiser Theatre is located at 305 West 43rd Street (just west of Eighth Avenue). For more information and tickets, call (212) 246-4422 or visit 2ST.com.
