Ann McDonough Replaces Dana Ivey in Joshua Harmon's Admissions
Rehearsals are now underway for the Lincoln Center Theater production.
Ann McDonough (Dinner at Eight) has replaced the previously announced Dana Ivey in Joshua Harmon's Admissions, which is set to begin previews February 15 and open on March 12 at the Mitzi E. Newhouse Theater. The new play is directed by Daniel Aukin.
In addition to McDonough, the cast will feature Ben Edelman (Significant Other), Andrew Garman (Salome), Jessica Hecht (The Price), and Sally Murphy (August: Osage County).
In Admissions, Sherri Rosen-Mason (Hecht) is head of the admissions department at the Hillcrest School, fighting to diversify the student body. And alongside her husband (Garman), the school's headmaster, they've largely succeeded in bringing a stodgy institution into the 21st century. But when their only son (Edelman) sets his sights on an Ivy League university, personal ambition collides with progressive values.
The show will have sets by Riccardo Hernandez, costumes by Toni-Leslie James, lighting by Mark Barton, and sound by Ryan Rumery.
