Current star Dennehy ends his stint Nov. 9. Loggia (Boom Boom Room, "Jagged Edge") will play Nov. 18-23, Rees (A Man of No Importance) is set for Nov. 25-30 and Lloyd (Morning's at Seven, "Taxi") performs Dec. 9-28. Previously announced actors Gore Vidal and Charles Durning are still scheduled to run Nov. 11-16 and Dec. 2-7, respectively.

Christopher Trumbo, son of the work's focal character, culled the play from the letters of the legendary blacklisted screenwriter. Trumbo tells the story of one of the "Hollywood Ten" who went before the House Un-American Activities Committee. After refusing to answer questions about his political affiliations, Trumbo was fired from MGM and imprisoned for a year. Peter Askin (Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Sexaholix... a love story) directs.

Nathan Lane began in the Dalton Trumbo homage for this run at the Westside Theatre — where it ran earlier this year with a rotating cast of stars. The new open ended Off Broadway engagement opened began Aug. 26 and opened Sept. 4.

The play's focus, Trumbo, wrote such screenplays as "The Brave One," "Exodus," "Spartacus," "Roman Holiday," and "Papillon" as well as the novel "Johnny Got His Gun."
