Directed by Bud Martin (Off-Broadway's Any Given Monday), the limited engagement continues through Dec. 16. Previews began Nov. 7.
Joining Learned (The Best Man, The Sisters Rosenweig) in The Outgoing Tide are Ian Lithgow ("Third Rock From the Sun") and Peter Strauss (Einstein and the Polar Bear).

Other members of the creative team include set designer Dirk Durossette, costume designer Wade Laboissonnier, lighting designer James Leitner and sound designer David O'Connor.
