The change in date is to accommodate the shooting schedule of one of the lead actors, who has been cast in a television pilot. As previously reported, Tony Award winner Betty Buckley will play the role of Mrs. White for the first eight weeks of the run. The cast also features Scott Patterson, Peter Scolari, Christy Carlson Romano, Rena Strober and Jimmy Ray Bennett. Producers of the Ben Andron play are Aaron Grant, Jana Robbins, Jeremy Handelman, Craig Haffner and Karl E. Held; Bob Cline directs.
"Some guys are scared stiff at the prospect of settling down, getting married, having kids & Joe White is no exception," according to White's Lies press notes. "He's a divorce lawyer, representing one of his many ex-girlfriends & above all else, he's a bachelor who wouldn't have it any other way. So when his mother desperately wants him to start a family, he'll do the next best thing: make one up! What could go wrong? Only love, in the outrageous new comedy White's Lies."
