LaBute’s ‘Goes’ taps Peet to relieve Tomei

Opening night set for March 27

Amanda Peet has replaced Marisa Tomei in the upcoming production of Neil LaBute’s “This Is How It Goes” at the Public Theater. A spokesman attributed Tomei’s departure to “personal family reasons.”

Ben Stiller and Jeffrey Wright remain onboard and have been in rehearsals with director George C. Wolfe. Previews begin Thursday, with opening night set for March 27.

Stiller and Wright were in the audience at Wednesday night’s world premiere of Stephen Adly Guirgis’ play “The Last Days of Judas Iscariot” at the Public. Tomei did not attend.

Peet’s film sked includes back-to-back openings this spring in Woody Allen’s “Melinda and Melinda” and “A Lot Like Love,” opposite Ashton Kutcher. The LaBute play is not the actress’s Gotham stage debut. She has performed in productions at Jewish Rep, Rattlestick and Westbeth.

LaBute’s last legit offering in Gotham was the December preem of “Fat Pig,” in which the acid-penned scribe skewered the beauty culture. With “This Is How It Goes,” he takes on small-town America, offering a portrait of an interracial love triangle.
