John Gallagher Jr. Hops Into Cast of Rabbit Hole at MTC




Manhattan Theatre Club has announced that John Gallagher Jr. (Kimberly Akimbo) will join Tyne Daly, Cynthia Nixon, and John Slattery in the theatre's world premiere production of Rabbit Hole, written by David Lindsay-Abaire, and directed by Tony Award-winner Daniel Sullivan (Proof, Sight Unseen, Brooklyn Boy) at the Biltmore Theatre (261 West 47th Street).

The show will open February 2, 2006. Previews begin January 12, 2006. Additional casting will be announced soon.

"Becca (Cynthia Nixon) and Howie Corbett (John Slattery) have everything a family could want, until the day their world is turned upside down. In the aftermath of a life-shattering accident, the couple finds itself drifting perilously apart. Rabbit Hole charts their bittersweet search for comfort in the darkest of places and for a path that will lead them back up into the light of day," state production notes. 

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. 


"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."
