Anne Kauffman will stage the play about an American couple living abroad who must face a crack in their perfect world, which will begin previews Oct. 21 toward an Oct. 27 opening night. Belleville will continue through Nov. 12.

According to Yale Rep, "Young Americans Zack (Keller) and Abby (Dizzia) have the perfect ex-pat life in Paris: a funky bohemian apartment in up-and-coming Belleville; a stable marriage; and Zack’s noble mission to fight pediatric AIDS. But when Abby finds Zack at home one afternoon when he's supposed to be at work, the questions and answers that follow shake the foundation of their seemingly beautiful life."

Dizzia is a Tony Award nominee for In the Next Room, or the Vibrator Play. She has also been seen in Eurydice, The Hallway Trilogy, Cradle and All and Drunken City, among others. Keller co-starred opposite Dizzia in Cradle and All, and also appeared in The Seagull at Classic Stage Company, as well as Smudge, That Pretty Pretty… and Reborning.

Armand's stage credits include Eclipsed, dance of the holy ghosts, Ruined and Gem of the Ocean. Owour's Off-Broadway credits include The Orphans' Home Cycle, First Breeze of Summer and The Brothers Size.

The design team for Belleville includes Julia C. Lee (set design), Mark Nagle (costume design), Nina Hyun Seung Lee (lighting design), Robert Kaplowitz (sound design) and Rick Sordelet (fight direction). Herzog's poignant play 4000 Miles debuted at LCT3 Off-Broadway at the Duke on 42nd Street last spring and will return Off-Broadway at Lincoln Center Theater's Mitzi E. Newhouse Theater in spring 2012. She has also written After the Revolution and Hungry. Herzog's plays have been produced or developed at the Yale School of Drama, Ensemble Studio Theater, Arena Stage, New York Stage and Film, Provincetown Playhouse and ACT in San Francisco.
