Newly added to the comedy are Emily Zacharias (Jekyll & Hyde), Stanley Bahorek (Spelling Bee), Havilah Brewster (A Light Lunch), Lori Gardner (My Deah) and Juri Henley-Cohn ("New York, I Love You").
Mark Waldrop (When Pigs Fly, Whoop-Dee-Doo) directs the production that officially opens Oct. 14 and will run through Nov. 1 in the June Havoc Theatre.
Inventing Avi, according to press notes, "grapples with questions of authorship and identity as two sisters 'of a certain age' — one a rich producer and the other, a diva of the stage — collaborate on a hit play from a sexy Israeli writer. The play seems autobiographical, but the story is actually stolen from a place closer to home than either sister could ever imagine."
The production will have set design by Ray Klausen, costume design by Matthew Hemesath, lighting design by Brian Nason and sound design by David Margolin Lawson.
Korey and Waldrop previously worked together on the David Friedman revue Listen to My Heart, which earned Korey a Drama Desk nomination. Her Broadway appearances include All Shook Up, Triumph of Love, 45 Seconds from Broadway, Chicago, The Pirates of Penzance and Hello, Dolly! Off-Broadway, Korey has been seen in The Wild Party, A Woman of Will, Romance in Hard Times, Forbidden Broadway, No Way to Treat a Lady and Suburb. For tickets visit AbingdonTheatre.
