Shelter Island resident Kathryn Erbe has been cast in the world premiere of Ode to Joy, written and directed by Craig Lucas.
The former Law & Order: Criminal Intent star will share the stage with Arliss Howard at Cherry Lane Theatre.
According to the theater, “Ode to Joy tells the story of love, heartbreak, addiction and illness through the eyes of Adele, an audacious painter and her destructive relations with Mala and Bill, her two lovers.”
Though known for her television work, including Oz, Erbe is no stranger to the stage. She was nominated for a Tony in 1991 for her role as Mary in The Speed of Darkness.
Previews begin February 12. Opening night is February 27. The limited run is expected to end March 30. Visit cherrylanetheatre.org for ticket information.
