Ron Johnson will direct the Frederick Knott-created production. Auditions for the show will run in July.
Dirty Rotten Scoundrels will follow in November. Two con-men, on the French Riviera, look to con rich women out of their money. The men then find themselves in a triangle of sorts when they set their sights on a lovely young women. Mike Seely will direct this Jeffrey Lane/David Yazbek production.

March, near tax time, will be the appropriate time for Love, Sex, and the I.R.S. A fake married couple learn the I.R.S. will audit them. As a result, the "couple" must pretend to be married. One slight problem: the man of the couple is engaged...to a woman who is having an affair with the woman of the couple. Alan Weller will direct the Billy Van Zandt/Jane Milmore-created production.
Finally, the 80s return in the form of The Wedding Singer, which runs in May. Robbie Hart is a former rock god turned wedding singer who is left at the alter of his own wedding. Following disasterous performances at other wedding parties, Julia comes into his life. However, she's about to marry an unscrupulous Wall Street investor.
