Maxwell flies with ‘Wings’

Kopit play opens Off Broadway in November

Jan Maxwell will topline Second Stage Theater’s Off Broadway production of “Wings.”

The 1978 Arthur Kopit play will be helmed by John Doyle (“Sweeney Todd,” “Company”).

Teagle F. Bougere, January LaVoy, Michael Warner, Anne L. Nathan and Beth Dixon also are among the cast of the show, about a woman — a former “wingwalker” on 1920s airplanes — struggling with aphasia after a stroke.

Stage stint for Maxwell is the first since her two gigs on the Main Stem last season, “The Royal Family” and “Lend Me a Tenor,” earned her a pair of 2010 Tony noms.

Design team of “Wings” includes Scott Pask (sets), Ann Hould-Ward (costumes) and Jane Cox (lights). Show begins previews Oct. 5, with an opening set for takeoff Oct. 24.
