Testa to Step In for Hoffman in 'Regrets Only,' 12/10-1/7

Tony-nominee Mary Testa will step in for Jackie Hoffman during the Off-Broadway run of Paul Rudnick's Regrets Only, presented by Manhattan Theatre Club.

Testa will play Hoffman's role of Myra Kessleman - a Jewish maid - from December 10th through January 7th.  Hoffman returns on January 9th.

Regrets Only "is a delicious world premiere comedy of Manhattan manners, exploring the very latest topics in marriage and friendship. The setting: a Park Avenue penthouse. The players: a powerhouse attorney, his deliriously social wife and their closest friend, one of the world's most staggeringly successful fashion designers. Add a daughter's engagement, some major gowns, the President of the United States, and stir."  The production, directed by Christopher Ashley, opened on November 19.

Testa was nominated for a 2001 Best Featured Actress in a Musical Tony for her performance in the revival of 42nd Street, and most recently appeared in Michael John LaChiusa's See What I Wanna See.  Other Broadway credits include Marie Christine, On the Town (for which she received her first Tony nomination), A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, The Rink, Barnum and Marilyn: An American Fable. Her extensive off-Broadway credits include String of Pearls, The Wax, Boys Don't Wear Lipstick, The Vagina Monologues, Tartuffe, Scapin, Lucky Stiff and In Trousers.  She won Obie Awards for her performances in On the Town and From Above.

The cast also features: Christine Baranski (Tibby McCullough), Diane Davis (Spencer McCullough), George Grizzard (Hank Hadley), Siân Phillips (Marietta Claypoole) and David Rasche (Jack McCullough).

The design team features: Michael Yeargan (Set Design), William Ivey Long (Costume Design), Natasha Katz (Lighting Design), John Gromada (Sound Design).
