The Our Town director and star will helm Lincoln Center Theater's upcoming production of When the Rain Stops Falling.

The work by Australian playwright Andrew Bovell ("Lantana," "Strictly Ballroom") will make its American premiere Feb. 11, 2010, at Off-Broadway's Mitzi E. Newhouse Theater with an official opening March 8.

The play, according to LCT, "is an epic drama, set in England and Australia, that traces a family's history spanning 80 years."

When the Rain Stops Falling, which played a London engagement at the Almeida Theatre, premiered at Australia's 2008 Adelaide Festival and was later produced by the Sydney Theater Company.

Cromer also directed the acclaimed Off-Broadway musical Adding Machine. The Neil Simon Plays will mark his Broadway directorial debut. Cromer will exit his role as the Stage Manager in Our Town Aug. 16 to begin rehearsals for his upcoming projects.

Casting has yet to be announced.

The Mitzi E. Newhouse Theater is located in Manhattan at 150 West 65th Street. For more information visit LCT.
