News   Cast Complete for Off-Broadway's Modern Orthodox
Jenn Harris is the fourth and final cast member of the upcoming Off-Broadway premiere of Daniel Goldfarb's Modern Orthodox. As previously announced, the play will star Molly Ringwald, Jason Biggs and Craig Bierko.

The work is set to begin performances Nov. 11 at the 499-seat Dodger Stages at Worldwide Plaza. Opening night is scheduled for Dec. 6.

Harris is a veteran of the Williamstown Theatre Festival, having acted there in God of Vengeance, The Winter’s Tale, Once in a Lifetime and Street Scene. In New York, she's been seen in Plank Project, Will You Please Shut Up and Pains of Youth.

Jason Biggs, who took part in the December reading of the Goldfarb comedy, will star as "lovable schmuck" Hershel Klein. James Lapine will direct the play, which concerns the effects Biggs' character has "on a young Jewish couple of lapsed faith."

Molly Ringwald made her Broadway debut as Sally Bowles in the Tony-winning revival of Cabaret and also appeared in last season's Enchanted April. She starred Off-Broadway in Jonathan Larson's tick, tick . . . BOOM!. Ringwald is best known for such films as "Pretty in Pink" and "Sixteen Candles."

Playwright Goldfarb has also written Adam Baum and the Jew Movie, which won the 2000 NY Newsday Oppenheimer Award. Goldfarb's Sarah, Sarah was presented at the Manhattan Theatre Club this past spring.
