Mad Men" star Vincent Kartheiser and Broadway's Larry Pine (CASA VALENTINA) will play Billy Wilder and Raymond Chandler, respectively, in BILLY & RAY, Mike Bencivenga's new play -- directed by the legendary director/writer/producer Garry Marshall -- being given its NY premiere this fall at the Vineyard Theatre (108 E. 15 St.), with previews scheduled to begin October 1 prior to an official opening on October 20. The company just met the press and you can check out photos from inside the event below!

Completing the cast of BILLY & RAY are Sophie von Haselberg (THE CAT AND THE CANARY) as Wilder's long-suffering secretary, and Drew Gehling (JERSEY BOYS) as a beleaguered studio chief.

BILLY & RAY -- a whip-smart comedy charting the birth of the film noir genre -- follows literary odd couple writer-director Billy Wilder and novelist Raymond Chandler as they contentiously collaborate to adapt the novel Double Indemnity for the silver screen. Set in 1940s Hollywood, BILLY & RAY is the true story of how two brilliant and thorny artists battled the Hollywood censors and each other to create a groundbreaking movie classic.

Also announced is the design team for BILLY & RAY with scenic design by Charlie Corcoran, lighting design by Russell Champa, costume design by Michael Krass and sound design by David Van Tieghem.

BILLY & RAY will begin performances October 1 with shows on Tuesdays and Wednesdays at 7 pm, Thursdays through Saturdays at 8 pm and Saturdays and Sundays at 3 pm. Tickets will go on sale to the general public on September 4. For performance and ticket information, call The Vineyard box office at 212 353 0303 or visitwww.vineyardtheatre.org.
