Rashad in for ‘Alba’

Thesp joins tuner in February

Phylicia Rashad will topline the cast of “Bernarda Alba.” The new tuner from Michael John LaChiusa (“See What I Wanna See”) begins previews in February at Lincoln Center.

Graciela Daniele (“Chita Rivera: The Dancer’s Life”) directs an ensemble that includes Daphne Rubin-Vega and Candy Buckley.

Rashad, who won a Tony for “A Raisin in the Sun” in 2004, plays a tyrannical widow in the show, based on Federico Garcia Lorca’s “The House of Bernarda Alba.”

Production opens March 6 at the Mitzi E. Newhouse Theater.
