Alicia Silverstone, Kelly Reilly on Tap for Upcoming New York Stage Productions

Alicia Silverstone, “True Detective” actress Kelly Reilly and Eve Best (“Nurse Jackie”) have joined the casts of upcoming plays in New York, with Silverstone set to appear in Manhattan Theater Club’s Off Broadway production of “Of Good Stock” and Reilly and Best lined up to co-star with Clive Owen in the Roundabout Theater Company’s Broadway revival of “Old Times.”

Silverstone returns to the New York stage after Broadway stints in “The Performers” in 2012 and MTC’s staging of “Time Stands Still” in 2010. She’ll star with Jennifer Mudge and Heather Lind in Melissa Ross’ “Of Good Stock,” about the reunion of the three adult daughters of a novelist. MTC artistic director Lynne Meadow will direct the production in MTC’s Off Broadway venue for a run that starts previews June 4 prior to a June 30 opening.

Reilly, the actress whose screen credits include the “Sherlock Holmes” franchise and the upcoming season of “True Detective,” makes her Broadway debut alongside Owen in “Old Times,” to be directed by Douglas Hodge, the actor-director who’s appeared on Broadway in “La Cage aux Folles” and “Cyrano de Bergerac.” Best, meanwhile, has appeared on Broadway in revivals of “The Homecoming” and “A Moon for the Misbegotten.” The new production of Pinter’s three-actor play begins previews Sept. 17 ahead of an Oct. 6 opening at the American Airlines Theater, one of Roundabout’s Broadway venues.

Also joining a Broadway cast later this year are Chris Fitzgerald (“Wicked,” “Finian’s Rainbow”) and Tim Kazurinsky, signing on to appear with Jim Parsons in “An Act of God,” the comedy that starts previews May 5 at Studio 54, with an opening set for May 28.
