Howard, Bryggman in ‘CQ/CX’

Cast set for latest Atlantic show

Arliss Howard and legit regulars David Pittu and Larry Bryggman are among the thesps lined up for “CQ/CX,” the new play bowing Off Broadway in a production from the Atlantic Theater Company.

Play by Gabe McKinley, loosely inspired by real events, centers on a young black reporter in a plagiarism scandal at the New York Times. Kobi Libii will appear as the play’s protag.

Stage credits for Howard (“Rubicon”) include the recent Broadway revival of “Joe Turner’s Come and Gone” and Off Broadway’s “The Late Henry Moss.” Peter Jay Fernandez, Tim Hopper, Steve Rosen and Shelia Tapia are also among the ensemble.

“CQ/CX” is the latest offering in the Atlantic’s 2011-12 season, following the recently shuttered Ethan Coen outing “Happy Hour.”

Production, helmed by David Leveaux, begins previews Jan. 25 ahead of a Feb. 15 opening at the Peter Norton Space, a venue termporarily used by the Atlantic while its mainstage theater undergoes renovation.
