The six-actor ensemble, Fiasco Theater, will offer the romantic work that will run Jan. 13-30 at the New Victory Theatre. An official opening has been set for Jan. 16.

Steinfeld and Noah Brody will co-direct and appear in Cymbeline, which will also feature Young, Paul L. Coffey and Andy Grotelueschen.

The production will incorporate original compositions, as well as madrigal, folk and bluegrass sources, which will be performed live.

"Cymbeline," according to Fiasco Theatre, "tells of a beautiful princess separated from her beloved, the cruel step-mother who tries to foil her, a credulous husband duped by an adversary, an exiled nobleman who kidnaps a king's sons and a Roman invasion of Britain. All that and more is neatly tucked into a lightning-paced, streamlined production in which six versatile actors play 14 roles. A plain white cloth becomes a sail, a bed sheet and a toga. A trunk becomes a ship. And all the while, these magical theatrical transformations playfully deepen the drama's signature themes of error, deception and redemption."

Cymbeline marks the Off-Broadway debut of Fiasco Theatre, which was founded by Austrian, Brody and Steinfeld. All members are graduates of the Brown University/Trinity Repertory MFA Acting Program.
