Zeke Rettman directs the work by writer/producer Mark Goffman ("The West Wing," "Studio 60") at the Stella Adler Theatre in Hollywood, CA May 20-June 25. David O. Sacks, Room 9 Entertainment and Garmar Ventures present the work with additional support from Broadway producer Barry Weissler and BWF Foundation. "Me Too is a story about how the curative properties of love, which have been documented in scientific journals, can be used as a therapy of sorts," according to Rettman. The story follows a woman who faces an illness while being pursued by a stubborn young romantic.
McKellar met writer Goffman on the set of "The West Wing" during her run as the recurring character Elsie Snuffin. This is the television scribe's first venture into theater.
McKellar played the lead in Proof at San Diego Repertory in 2003. She has also made guest appearances on TV's "How I Met Your Mother" and appeared on "Static Shock," "King of The Hill," "Justice League;" "The Division," "Even Stevens" and "Working". She wrote, produced and co-directed the award winning short film "speechless."
Greg Pitts ("Office Space," "Sons and Daughters") and Jeremy Glazer (A Picture of Dorian Gray at Theater) also appear in the cast that includes Meeghan Holoway (Dinner With Friends), Heidi Schooler (King Lear) and Hardia Madden, Jr. (Anna Lucasta).
The Me Too design team includes Elephant Stageworks (set), Steve Pope (lighting) and Sabra Miller (make-up). Music is arranged by Jackson Bennett.
