‘Trainspotting’ cast onboard

Quartet set to play 10 roles in Off Broadway play

NEW YORK — The quartet of Tessa Auberjonois, Dara Coleman, Sebastian Roche and Seth Ullian has been set to play a total of 10 roles in the Off Broadway production of “Trainspotting,” which will open Tuesday at the Players Theater.

“Trainspotting” is being helmed by Harry Gibson, who adapted the legit production from the novel by Irvine Walsh (and not the Miramax pic of the same name). Gibson is an actor member of the Citizens Theater Co. in Glasgow.

Auberjonois was last seen Off Broadway at the Lucille Lortel Theater in “Uncommon Women” and played Laurie Miller on the NBC soap “Another World.”

Coleman was featured Off Broadway in two productions of the Irish Repertory Theater, “The Plough and the Stars” and “Whistle in the Dark,” and in the film “Moll Flanders.”

Roche has appeared in pics “The Peacemaker,” “Last of the Mohicans,” and “Household Saints” and on the small screen in “New York Undercover” and “Law and Order.”

Ullian appeared Off Broadway at the Orpheum Theater for three years in “Stomp” and was featured in the Kevin Kline-starrer “In and Out.”

“Trainspotting” is being produced by Columbia Artists Theatricals and by Arielle Tepper (“Freak”) and has Columbia’s Aldo Scrofani as its executive producer.
