Stephanie March and Erik Jensen Will Tune in for Broadway's Talk Radio

News   Stephanie March and Erik Jensen Will Tune in for Broadway's Talk Radio
"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" actress Stephanie March and actor-playwright Erik Jensen will join Liev Schreiber and Peter Hermann in the cast of Broadway's upcoming Talk Radio.

Robert Falls (Long Day's Journey Into Night, Shining City) stages the Eric Bogosian work, which will begin previews Feb. 9, 2007, and open Feb. 25 at the Longacre Theatre.

March — who recently appeared on "30 Rock" — will join fellow "SVU" alum Hermann in the cast. Her role on the series was assistant district attorney Alexandra Cabot. The actress previously trod the Broadway boards in the 1999 revival of Arthur Miller's Death of a Salesman opposite Brian Dennehy.

Jensen will make his Broadway debut in the role of Stu Noonan, longtime friend and foil to Schreiber's talk-show host character Barry Champlain. He (with his wife, Jessica Blank) created the play and film The Exonerated. He appeared Off-Broadway in Y2K and will be seen in the forthcoming series "The Bronx Is Burning."

Talk Radio follows an acid-tongued, late-night talk-show host whose program is about to be picked up for national syndication. The work first played in New York in 1987 at Off-Broadway's Public Theater with Bogosian starring in his own work opposite a cast that included Linda Atkinson, John C. McGinley and Mark Metcalf. It was adapted by Bogosian and director Oliver Stone for the 1988 film.

Schreiber just appeared in Macbeth for The Public Theater's "Shakespeare in the Park" this summer, following up his Henry V turn in 2003. Other credits include Harold Pinter's Betrayal; Neil LaBute's The Mercy Seat; and Othello. A co-star in the"Lackawanna Blues" HBO film, he has also appeared on film in the "Scream" trilogy, "The Manchurian Candidate" remake and on television in "RKO 281" and "Spinning Boris." He made his directorial debut last year with "Everything Is Illuminated" — which he also adapted. The actor will be seen in January on the CBS series "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation." Seen as lawyer Trevor Langan on "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" and recently in the film "United 93," Hermann will play radio producer Dan Woodruff. On stage, the actor has been seen in The Gathering, Titus Andronicus, Antony and Cleopatra, Hot Keys and the 2001 Broadway mounting of Judgment at Nuremberg. Other credits include "Swim Fan" and "The Treatment."

The design team for Talk Radio will include Mark Wendland (set), Christopher Akerlind (lights), Laura Bauer (costumes) and Richard Woodbury (sound).

The producing team is Jeffrey Richards, Jerry Frankel and JAM Theatricals.

Another well-known Bogosian work, subUrbia, was just staged at Off Broadway's Second Stage Theatre by Bogosian's wife Jo Bonney. As a performer, he was last seen as The Devil in Stephen Adly Guirgis' The Last Days of Judas Iscariot. He has also appeared in his one-man works Sex, Drugs, Rock & Roll; Pounding Nails in the Floor With My Forehead; Drinking in America; and Wake Up and Smell the Coffee. The scribe can also be seen in the films "Wonderland," Heights," "Igby Goes Down" and "Deconstructing Harry."

Tickets to Talk Radio at the Longacre Theater 220 West 48th St., will be available by calling (212) 239-6200.
