Rehearsals for the new J.T. McDaniel dark comedy COMING OUT are entering their final week as the cast prepares for the world premier on Friday, October 4, at The Abbey Theater of Dublin. "We've put together a group of very talented actors," says author J.T. McDaniel, who also plays family patriarch Bob Anderson. "We're committed to making this the best new play of the year."

COMING OUT relates events at the 40th anniversary of central Ohio college professors Bob and Susan Anderson. As the family gathers, their younger son comes out as gay. Complicating affairs is the Anderson's rabidly homophobic evangelist elder son, a pregnant secretary, and marital discord from an unexpected quarter.

Directed by Colleen Dunne, COMING OUT features author McDaniel, Brenda Newsom, Jim LeVally, Martha Kathryn Smith, Jai Furlong, Will 'TuTail' Smith, Ashley Collins, Chris Wharton, and Grace Rinehart.

A combination dress rehearsal and preview at 6:30 pm on Thursday, October 3, is open to the public. Tickets for the preview are $5.00, and benefit the Ohio Buckeye Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.

COMING OUT officially opens on Friday, October 4, at 8:00 pm, at The Abbey Theater, 5600 Post Road, Dublin, OH 43017, and runs weekends through October 19. Performances are at 8:00 pm on Fridays, and at 3:00 pm and 8:00 pm on Saturdays. Tickets are $25.00 for adults, $20.00 for seniors and students. For reservations, call 1-866-558-4253, or reserve online
