Additional casting has been announced for New York Theatre Workshop's upcoming production of Lillian Hellman's The Little Foxes, which will star the previously announced Elizabeth Marvel.



Director Ivo van Hove will reteam with actress Marvel — who starred in his 2004 NYTW production of Hedda Gabler — for the Hellman play, which is scheduled to begin previews Sept. 10 prior to an official opening Sept. 30. Performances will continue through Oct. 31.

The cast, according to the NYTW website, will also feature Tina Benko, Marton Csokas, Lynda Gravatt, Elizabeth Marvel, Cristin Milioti, Thomas Jay Ryan, Greig Sargeant, Sanjit De Silva, Christopher Evan Welch and Nick Westrate.

"Van Hove's fresh vision of this iconic play will be a study of how women of different races and classes contend with male aggression, power, and domination," according to NYTW. "Elizabeth Marvel . . . will take on the role of Regina Giddens, the strong and determined woman at the center of Hellman's web of deceit."

The creative team also includes dramaturg Thibaud Delpeut, scenic designer Jan Versweyveld, costume designer Kevin Guyer, lighting designer Jan Versweyveld, sound designer Jamie McElhinney and video designer Tal Yarden.
