The 'Dawson's Creek' actress has joined the cast of an Off-Broadway production of 'The Wanderers,' written by playwright Anna Ziegler. Katie will play a movie star who becomes involved in the life of a Jewish novelist in the play, which will begin preview performances at the Laura Pels Theater in New York in January.
Barry Edelstein, artistic director of The Old Globe Theatre, will direct the Roundabout Theatre Company production, which is scheduled to debut on February 16 and run for a constrained time until March 26.
According to a release from the theatre group, the play is: "Esther and Schmuli are two newlywed Orthodox Jews, and the Torah's laws foretell their future. Famous novelist and secular Jew Abe believes he can write his own future, but a surprise correspondence from a Hollywood star threatens to change everything after his marriage is put to the test."
At a later time, the remaining actors and members of the creative team will be revealed.
In 2008, Katie made her Broadway debut in the revival of Arthur Miller's timeless masterpiece "All My Sons," costarring with actors including John Lithgow, Dianne Wiest, and Patrick Wilson. She last appeared on stage in a performance of Theresa Rebeck's "Dead Accounts" in 2012, which was performed ten years ago.
