Anna Gunn is following her “Breaking Bad” co-star Bryan Cranston to the New York stage, where she’ll star this summer in Laura Eason’s “Sex with Strangers” directed by David Schwimmer.

Gunn hasn’t been on the New York boards since she was in the Roundabout Theater Company’s 1996 revival of Jean Anouilh’s “The Rehearsal.” In Second Stage Theater’s production of “Sex with Strangers” she’ll co-star with Billy Magnussen, who was nommed for a Tony last season in “Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike” and recently finished shooting a role in Rob Marshall’s movie adaptation of tuner “Into the Woods.”

Gunn won’t quite overlap on the Gotham boards with Cranston, whose toplining gig in Broadway play “All the Way” is currently set to end June 29. “Sex with Strangers” starts previews at Second Stage July 8 ahead of a July 30 opening.

Play, a two-hander about relationships in the iAge, earned strong buzz in a separate production that played in 2011 at the Chicago’s Steppenwolf Theater. Schwimmer, like Gunn and Magnussen, is also new to the title.
