Casting has been announced for the Musicals Tonight's upcoming production of Stop the World - I Want to Get Off, which will play the McGinn/Cazale Theatre in Manhattan April 13-25.

Thomas Sabella-Mills will direct the limited run with music direction by James Stenborg.

The cast will feature Matt Wilson, Stephanie Sine, Lauren Ruff, Sara Sawyer, Kate Campbell, Amy Jackson, Mary Catherine McDonald and Kristin Katherine Shields.

Stop the World - I Want to Get Off features book, music, and lyrics by Leslie Bricusse. The musical, according to press notes, is described as such: "Set against the backdrop of a surreal world symbolized by a circus, it focuses on 'an everyman' - Littlechap (Matt Wilson) - whose first major step towards improving his lot is to marry Evie (Stephanie Sine), his boss' daughter. The traditional responsibilities of work-home-family that includes two daughters (Lauren Ruff and Sara Sawyer), results in a growing dissatisfaction with his 'lot in life' and leads him into the arms of three women who offer the promise of 'something more' (all portrayed by Stephanie Sine). His life-long search for that 'something more' ends with the realization that the love of his wife has always been the 'something more' he thought was eluding him. A 'Greek chorus' (Kate Campbell, Amy Jackson, Mary Catherine McDonald, and Kristin Katherine Shields) help guide us on Littlechap's journey."

Songs include "Gonna Build a Mountain" and "What Kind of Fool Am I?"

McGinn/Cazale is located at 2162 Broadway, between 76th and 77th Streets. For tickets, priced $25, visit www.iseats.net or call (212) 579-4230.
