Roundabout Theatre Company has announced the complete cast of Roundabout Underground's upcoming world premiere Bobbie Clearly, which will begin previews at the Black Box Theatre within the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre on March 8, 2018, before an official opening on April 3 and a limited engagement through to May 20, 2018.

Ethan Dubin is set to take on the title role of the play. He has previously appeared off-Broadway in The World My Mama Raised and Rancho Viejo and on screen in "Orange is the New Black". He will be accompanied in the cast by Gabriel Brown (as Pete Pfeifer), Sasha Diamond (as Meghan Gotschell), Crystal Finn (as Jane Welch), Marcus Ho (as Russ Scott), Christopher Innvar (as Stanley Welch), Tyler Lea (as Eddie Welch), Talene Monahon (as Megan Currie), Brian Quijada (as Mitch Backes), Constance Shulman (as Darla London) and JD Taylor (as Derek Nelson).

Bobbie Clearly is a new play by Alex Lubischer, directed by Will Davis.

Synopsis: "Bobbie killed Casey in the middle of a cornfield in Milton, Nebraska. Two years later, Milton's residents are ready to tell you their side(s) of the story. This comedy-about-a-tragedy pushes the boundaries of Roundabout's Black Box Theatre, with a sprawling cast of eccentric characters and an ambitious narrative that pulls back the husk of rural life."

The creative team behind Bobbie Clearly features scenic design by Arnulfo Maldonado, costume design by Ásta Hostetter, lighting design by Jen Schreiver, and sound design by Palmer Hefferan.

Bobbie Clearly Tickets are available now for performances through to May 20, 2018.

In other Roundabout Theatre Company news, Edward Barbanell has been added to the cast of Amy and the Orphans, which began previews at the Laura Pels Theatre within the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre on February 1. Mr. Barbanell will act as a standby for for "American Horror Story" star Jamie Brewer, who plays the title role. At performances featuring Mr. Barbanell, the title character will be called Andy.

Amy and the Orphans, written by Lindsey Ferrentino and directed by Scott Ellis, is set to officially open on March 1 and continue its limited engagement through to April 22, 2018.

Synopsis: "After their father's death, two unhinged siblings reunite with Amy, their movie-loving sister who has Down syndrome. Together, they careen down the Great American Long Island Expressway, navigating strip malls, traffic jams and some serious (and not-so-serious) family drama. An unexpected turn reveals the moment that changed their lives…and the fact that Amy may be the only one who knows her own mind. Amy and the Orphans is a rollicking ride that proves it's never too late to follow a new road."
