Full Casting Announced for MTC's Rabbit Hole, Starring Daly

Manhattan Theatre Club has announced full casting for the upcoming world premiere of Rabbit Hole by David Lindsay-Abaire, directed by Daniel Sullivan at the Biltmore Theatre (261 West 47th Street). The play will open February 2, 2006 at the Biltmore Theatre (261 West 47th Street). Previews begin January 12, 2006.

The cast will feature (in alphabetical order): Tyne Daly (Nat), John Gallagher Jr. (Jason), Mary Catherine Garrison (Izzy), Cynthia Nixon (Becca), and John Slattery (Howie).

"Becca (Nixon) and Howie Corbett (Slattery) have everything they could want, until a life-shattering accident turns their world upside down, and leaves the couple drifting perilously apart. Becca, who must also cope with the distractions of her reckless sister Izzy (Garrison), and their opinionated mother, Nat (Daly), takes solace in her unlikely friendship with a neighborhood teenager, Jason (Gallagher), who might provide the key to lead her back from the darkest of places," state production notes. "The play is a bittersweet drama about finding hope in the lowest moments of our lives, and the paths we take to return to the light of day."

The play will mark the Broadway debut of playwright David Lindsay-Abaire, who has been represented at MTC with productions of Fuddy Meers, Wonder of the World, and Kimberly Akimbo.

The creative team for Rabbit Hole includes: John Lee Beatty (Set Design), Jennifer von Mayrhauser (Costume Design), Christopher Akerlind (Lighting Design), and John Gromada (Sound Design and Original Music).

"Under the leadership of Artistic Director Lynne Meadow and Executive Producer Barry Grove, MTC has become one of the country's most prominent and prestigious theatre companies. Renowned MTC productions include Doubt; Proof; The Tale of the Allergist's Wife; Yellowman; Kimberly Akimbo; Love! Valour! Compassion!; Sylvia; Four Dogs and a Bone; Putting It Together; Lips Together, Teeth Apart; Frankie and Johnny in the Clair de Lune; Crimes of the Heart; and Ain't Misbehavin'. In 2003, MTC reopened Broadway's long neglected landmark Biltmore Theatre, following a two-year, $35 million capital campaign."
