Adriane Lenox, who won a Tony Award for her one-scene portrayal of a frightened mother, will reprise her role in the tour, which begins in Los Angeles on Sept. 22. She joins original star Cherry Jones, who also won a Tony for her work.

Following her stint at Los Angeles' Ahmanson Theatre (Sept. 22-Oct. 29), Lenox will remain with the tour for stops in San Diego (Civic Theatre, Oct. 31-Nov. 5) and San Francisco (Nov. 7-Dec. 3).

Chris McGarry (Father Flynn) and Lisa Joyce (Sister James) round out the tour's cast.

The Broadway production of Shanley's Pulitzer Prize-winning Doubt ended July 2 at the Walter Kerr Theatre. Lenox played the entire run.

Doubt was originally produced by Manhattan Theatre Club Off-Broadway at Stage I at New York City Center, where it opened Nov. 23, 2004 to rave reviews, and played for 101 performances through Jan. 30, 2005.

The production began performances on Broadway on March 9, 2005, and opened on March 31, 2005, at the Walter Kerr Theatre.

"Set against the backdrop of a Bronx Catholic school in 1964, Doubt is the story of a strong-minded woman faced with a difficult decision. Should she voice concerns about one of her male colleagues…even if she's not entirely certain of the truth?"
