Original New York cast members Patrick Breen, Patrick Heusinger and Maddie Corman will join Emmy Award winner Jean Smart in the L.A. Theatre Works production of Geoffrey Nauffts' Tony Award-nominated play Next Fall.



Breen, Heusinger and Corman were all part of the 2009 Off-Broadway world premiere of Next Fall and repeated their work uptown when the play transferred to Broadway in 2010. It received a 2010 Tony Award nomination for Best Play.

Breen (The Normal Heart) plays Adam, opposite Heusinger as his partner Luke. Corman portrays best gal-pal Holly. Smart ("Designing Women") will take on the role of Luke's mother, Arlene. The roles of Brandon and Butch have not been announced.

Bart DeLorenzo will stage the production that will run Jan. 19-22 at UCLA's James Bridges Theater.

Here's how LATW bills Next Fall: "Two men in love, two parents in denial, and two friends on speed dial. Luke believes in God, while Adam believes in everything else. When an accident changes everything, Adam must turn to Luke's family and friends for support… and answers."

All LATW performances are recorded and broadcast on LATW's nationally syndicated radio theatre series, "The Play's the Thing."
