So, hi. This comm's looking a little bare, so I thought I'd share some Kendra news with everyone :) 

MTC Announces 'Receptionist' Cast & Premieres 'Four of Us'

Manhattan Theatre Club will premiere two new productions in their 2007-08 Off-Broadway season – The Receptionist by Adam Bock and The Four of Us by Itamar Moses – with newly-announced award-winning casts and directors.

The world premiere of The Receptionist by Adam Bock, directed by two-time Tony Award-winner Joe Mantello, will star Josh Charles (Dead Poets Society) as Mr. Dart; Robert Foxworth (Judgment at Nuremberg) as Mr. Raymond; and Kendra Kassebaum (Wicked) as Lorraine; joined by previously announced Tony Award-nominee Jayne Houdyshell (Well) as Beverly.  Featuring a scenic design by David Korins, costumes by Jane Greenwood, lighting by Brian MacDevitt and sound by Darron L. West.

The Receptionist begins previews at Stage I on Friday, October 12 with an opening night on Tuesday, October 30, 2007.

As described by press notes, "Beverly takes pride in her work as the receptionist at a busy Northeast office. Whether coaching her co-worker Lorraine through romantic troubles, fielding calls for their boss Mr. Raymond or carefully monitoring the flow of office supplies, Beverly keeps her domain shipshape. But when handsome Mr. Dart arrives unexpectedly from the central office, Beverly is charmed, Lorraine is smitten and Mr. Raymond is caught completely off guard."
