Directed by TACT co-artistic director Scott Alan Evans, the production will officially open March 25 at 7:30 PM. Performances will continue through April 19.

The cast will feature TACT company members Mark Alhadeff, Cynthia Darlow, Jeffrey C. Hawkins and Liv Rooth as well as guest artists Karl Kenzler and Michael Schantz.

In Beyond Therapy, press notes state, "life can be crazy. Therapy can help? In its first New York revival, Christopher Durang's razor sharp comedy about the search for a meaningful relationship in an insane world may provide the best therapy of all - guaranteed laughter."

“As enormous admirers of Chris Durang, we’re thrilled to be presenting the first NY revival of this seminal work,” said director Evans in a statement. “Beyond Therapy is a particular favorite of mine. Chris blends his sharp, incisive wit with a sweet and almost optimistic heart. We’re thrilled Chris will be around and participating.”

The creative team comprises Tom Cariello (sets), Kim Krumm Sorenson (costumes), Mary Louise Geiger (lights) and Jill BC DuBoff (sound). Beyond Therapy premiered Off-Broadway on New Year’s Day 1981 at the Phoenix Theatre in a production directed by Jerry Zaks, where it ran for 30 performances. The cast included Sigourney Weaver, Stephen Collins, Jim Borrell, Kate McGregor-Stewart and Jack Gilpin. The Broadway production, directed by John Madden, opened on May 26, 1982, at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre, where it ran for 21 performances. The cast included Dianne Wiest, John Lithgow and Peter Michael Goetz with McGregor-Smith and Gilpin reprising their Off-Broadway roles.
