Announcing Cast Members Joining Andrea Martin in Noises Off!

Posted on: July 24th, 2015 by Roundabout

 

We are thrilled to announce the complete cast for Michael Frayn’s comedy Noises Off. Joining the previously announced Andrea Martin as “Dotty Otley” are Campbell Scott as “Lloyd Dallas,” Tracee Chimo as “Poppy Norton‐Taylor,” Daniel Davis as “Selsdon Mowbray,” David Furr as “Garry Lejeune,” Kate Jennings Grant as “Belinda Blair,” Megan Hilty as “Brooke Ashton,” Rob McClure as “Tim Allgood” and Jeremy Shamos as “Frederick Fellowes.” Tony nominee Jeremy Herrin will direct the new Broadway production as part of our 50th anniversary season.

The cast of Noises Off features four celebrated Roundabout Theatre Company alumni: Tracee Chimo, who appeared in both hit productions of Bad Jews and Harvey; David Furr following his performance in the Tony-nominated revival of The Importance of Being Earnest; Kate Jennings Grant starred in The Marriage of Bette and Boo; and Jeremy Shamos received the 2014 Lucille Lortel Award for his performance in Dinner with Friends.

Full of shocking surprises and gut‐busting humor, Noises Off is the classic show‐within‐a‐show. The opening night performance of the farce Nothing On is just hours away, and as the cast stumbles through their final dress rehearsal, things couldn't be going any worse. With lines being forgotten, love triangles unraveling and sardines flying everywhere, it’s complete pandemonium…and we haven’t even reached intermission! Can the cast pull their act together on the stage even if they can't behind the scenes?
