Silverstone back to Broadway

Actress joins cast of porn comedy 'Performers'

Alicia Silverstone has signed on to join the cast of the Broadway world preem of “The Performers,” the porn-industry comedy in which Henry Winkler also appears.

The casting of Silverstone’s role had been the final piece of the puzzle in filling out the six-actor cast of “Performers,” which stars Cheyenne Jackson (“30 Rock”) and Daniel Breaker (“Shrek the Musical”) as two old friends who reunite at the Adult Film Awards. Silverstone and Ari Graynor (“Relatively Speaking”) portray the women in the men’s lives, while Winkler is on board as a porn industry veteran.

Silverstone, who also stars in the upcoming Amy Heckerling film “Vamps,” has previously appeared on Broadway in the stage version of “The Graduate” in 2002 and in the 2010 outing “Time Stands Still.”

Evan Cabnet helms the new play by David West Read. Robyn Goodman, the artistic consultant of the Roundabout Underground initiative that produced Read’s “The Dream of the Burning Boy” last year, produces “Performers” with Scott M. Delman and Amanda Lipitz.

Production begins previews Oct. 23 ahead of a Nov. 14 opening at the Longacre Theater, which recently hosted the brief summertime stint of “Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth.”
