The musical, which features book and lyrics by playwright and novelist Lodato and music by Pen, will begin performances at the Vineyard Theatre Feb. 12 prior to its official opening March 2.
Directed by Carolyn Cantor, Arlington will star Alexandra Silber (Hello Again, Master Class) as Sara Jane, who is described as "a young wife who valiantly tries to remain hopeful while her husband is away at war, despite a growing concern that something is not quite right."
Arlington marks a reunion for the Vineyard and Pen, whose musicals Goblin Market, Bed And Sofa and Christina Alberta's Father made their debuts at the Off-Broadway venue. Her works also include The Night Governess, Her Lightness, The Dumb Cake and Embarrassments.
Arlington will feature set design by Dane Laffrey, costume design by Jess Goldstein, lighting design by Tyler Micoleau and sound design by Dan Moses Schreier. The production stage manager is Colyn Fiendel.
