Amanda Seyfried to Replace 'Orphan Black' Star Tatiana Maslany in Neil LaBute's Off-Broadway Production 'The Way We Get By,' Stars Thomas Sadowski, Leigh Silverman Directs
Another Hollywood star will be taking the stage this coming April. Amanda Seyfried will replace Orphan Black star Tatiana Maslany in the off-Broadway production of The Way We Get By, a story about love and lust.
The play, written by Neil LaBute, will star Seyfried as Beth, who gets involved with Doug, played by The Newsroom's Thomas Sadoski. The announcement was made on Thursday after Maslany has to withdraw from the show due to filming schedule conflict.
This will be Seyfried's (who is known for her work in Mean Girls and the film version of Les Misérables) off-Broadway debut. The star has a list of movie projects lined up and has recently began filming on a new flick, Let It Snow.
While Seyfried may be a newcomer to the stage, Sadoski is no stranger to the theater world. In 2009, he won a Tony award for his performance in a different LaBute play Reasons to Be Pretty.
According to The Way We Get By website, the play is about two attractive people who have no trouble getting dates with whom they choose.
“What they do have, however, is a very awkward encounter after spending one hot night together following a drunken wedding reception they attend. They wake up to a blurry morning where the rules of attraction, sex and society are waiting for them before their first cup of coffee, which leads them to ponder how much they really know about each other and how much they really care about what other people think.”
The Way We Get By will be directed by Tony nominee Leigh Silverman and will being previews on April 28. The show is slated to open on May 20 for a limited engagement run through June 14 at the Second Stage Theatre.© 2016 The Classical Art, All rights reserved. Do not reproduce without permission.
