MTC filling in casting blanks for new season

Previews begin Oct. 12 with Nov. 2 opening

Artistic director Lynne Meadow and executive producer Barry Grove announced casting for the Manhattan Theatre Club’s 1999-2000 season.

Shelagh Stephenson’s “An Experiment with an Air Pump,” MTC’s Stage I opener on Oct. 26, features Seana Kofoed, Heather Goldenhersh, Christopher Duva, Jason Butler Harner, Ana Reeder and Linda Emond, with Doug Hughes directing.

Opening in early December, Arthur Kopit’s thriller “Y2K,” directed by Bob Balaban, stars James Naughton and Patricia Kalember.

World preems

In 2000, MTC features two world premieres: Andrew Lippa’s musical “The Wild Party” still has no revelers, but David Auburn’s play “Proof” will star Mary Louise Parker as a woman coping with an unexpected suitor.

MTC’s Stage II season also goes the world-premiere route. David Lindsay-Abaire’s new comedy “Fuddy Meers,” directed by David Petrarca, features Mary Louise Burke, Lisa Gorlitsky, Mark McKinney, J. Smith-Cameron and Robert Stanton.

Previews begin Oct. 12 with a Nov. 2 opening. In a real switch, playwright-drag artist Charles Bush does not take center stage in his new satire “The Tale of the Allergist’s Wife,” to be directed by Lynne Meadow. Linda Lavin takes over as leading lady in this one, with Tony Roberts as her distracted West Side husband.
