Jeffrey Carlson (The Goat, Taboo, Stage Kiss) and Angelica Page (August: Osage County, Side Man, "The Sixth Sense") star in the 90-minute production that was originally scheduled to open Feb. 1, but has now delayed its press opening to Feb. 7.

Psycho Therapy does not perform Wednesdays. Performances are scheduled to resume Jan. 30 at 8 PM. It is directed by Alex Lippard. Performances will then continue as scheduled through Feb. 25. 

The cast also features Obie Award winner Jan Leslie Harding (The Green Bird, A Lie of the Mind) and Laurence Lau (The Exonerated, "One Life to Live").

Here's how Psycho Therapy is billed: "Lily's fiancée Phillip blows off couples therapy and Dorian, her hot young ex-boyfriend, jumps in to fill the void. When the trio ends up on the couch together, only therapist Nancy Winston can untangle the kinks. Frank Strausser's insanely entertaining new comedy opens the door to a new option - couples therapy for three."

The production team includes Michael V. Moore (set designer), Amanda Bujak (costume designer), Amy Altadonna (sound designer), Jeff Croiter (lighting designer) and Allison Leyton-Brown (composer).

Tickets for Psycho Therapy, priced $66, can be purchased by calling (212) 352-3101 or by visiting psychotherapytheplay.com. The Cherry Lane Theatre is located at 38 Commerce Street.
