John Driscoll, of TV's "The Guiding Light," will make his New York theatrical debut Sept. 13 when he joins the cast of Angry Young Women in Low-Rise Jeans with High-Class Issues, written by Matt Morillo.
Since July the sketch-comedy-style evening has been playing an open-ended run Off-Broadway at the Players Theater on Macdougal Street in Greenwich Village.
Driscoll takes over two roles in the comedy: Ronnie, a happy-go-lucky lover of career women; and Barry, a B-movie idol.
A native of Virginia, Driscoll grew up just outside of Washington, DC, in a military household. He attended George Mason University before moving to New York.
The cast of eight is directed by the author, who has been involved in the New York independent film scene for nine years.
The acting ensemble includes Driscoll, Rachel Nau, Thomas J. Pilutik, Jennifer Missoni, Angelique Letizia, Nicholas J. Coleman and Jessica Durdock.
Lighting design is by Amith A. Chandrashaker. Set design is by Jana Mattioli.
The Players Theater is located at 115 Macdougal Street at Minetta, one block east of Sixth Avenue, and a block south of Washington Square Park.
Performances play Thursdays through Saturdays at 8 PM, Sundays at 3 PM.
Tickets are $45. For tickets call (212) 352-3101.

Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
