Casting is now complete for The New Group's upcoming production of Jonathan Marc Sherman's Clive, which begins a limited Off-Broadway engagement Jan. 17 at The New Group at Theatre Row (The Acorn Theatre, 410 West 42nd Street).

Joining the previously announced Ethan Hawke, Brooks Ashmanskas, Vincent D’Onofrio and Zoe Kazan are Stephanie Janssen, Mahira Kakkar, Aaron Krohn, Dana Lyn and playwright Sherman.

Also directed by Hawke, the production will officially open Feb. 7 at 7 PM.

Inspired by Bertolt Brecht's inflammatory play Baal, Clive, according to press notes, "tracks a dissipated songwriter in 1990s New York City from the hedonistic heights of seduction and consumption into an ecstasy of self-destruction."

This production reunites playwright Sherman and director Hawke, who teamed previously at The New Group on Things We Want (written by Sherman, directed by Hawke, 2007 extended run).

The play will also feature music and sound sculptures by GAINES with live violin performance by Dana Lyn; set design by Derek McLane; costume design by Catherine Zuber; lighting design by Jeff Croiter; and sound design by Shane Rettig.

Performances will be Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday at 7 PM and Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 8 PM with matinees Saturday at 2 PM.

Tickets may be arranged through www.telecharge.com or (212) 239-6200, or at the Theatre Row Box Office (12–8 PM daily). Tickets are $60 plus $1.25 restoration fee.
