The three-time Tony Award honoree is working on a book with journalist Patrick Pacheco.
The awards ceremony will celebrate a two-year season for Off- and Off-Off-Broadway theatre in November.
Plus, Matt Doyle is bartending and Cynthia Nixon plays a game with her fellow two-time Tony winner.
The musical has a book and lyrics by Lissa Levin and music by Ron Abel.
Jonathan Silverstein will direct Peter Gil-Sheridan's comedy Off-Broadway.
Tony nominee Carmen Cusack will star in an upcoming workshop production.
18 singers and instrumentalists will perform the oratorio, infused with blues, gospel, jazz and soul sounds.
Due to the expansive nature of Off-Broadway, this list is not comprehensive.
"Our end goal is not diversity, but rather a radical inclusion that elevates the voices of those historically marginalized and honors their—our stories."
