Atlantic Theater Company has announced the casting for The Bedwetter, a new musical making its world premiere with previews beginning April 30 and opening set for May 23. The production will run through June 19 at Off-Broadway's Linda Gross Theater.
The cast will feature Caissie Levy (Caroline, or Change, Frozen), Tony winner Bebe Neuwirth (Chicago), Ashley Blanchet (Waitress), Rick Crom (HBO’s Divorce), Zoe Glick (Frozen), Darren Goldstein (The Little Foxes), and Ellyn Marie Marsh (The Rose Tattoo).

The Bedwetter is based on Silverman's bestselling memoir of the same name about Sarah, a funny 10-year-old with a secret that's not so secret if you read the title. The stage adaptation features a book by Drama Desk winner Joshua Harmon and Emmy winner Sarah Silverman, with lyrics by Silverman and Emmy winner Adam Schlesinger, who also composed the music.
Lucille Lortel winner Any Kauffman is set to direct the production which will include choreography by Byron Easley. Also serving on the creative team are Tony winner David Yazbek (The Band's Visit) as creative consultant, Laura Jellinek as scenic designer, Kaye Voice as costume designer, Japhy Weideman as lighting designer, Kai Harada as sound designer, Lucy Mackinnon as projection designer, Henry Aronson as music director, Dean Sharenow as music supervisor and coordinator, Tom Watson as hair and wig designer, and Richard Hodge as production stage manager. Orchestrations are by David Chase, dialect coaching is by Kate Wilson, and casting is by The Telsey Office's Rachel Hoffman.
The Bedwetter is funded in part by National Endowment for the Arts.
