Upright Citizens Brigade alum Abby Rosebrock will make her off-Broadway debut with her new comedy Different Animals at the Cherry Lane Theater. The show is set to open on April 20.
Rosebrock stars in the show alongside rising comics Cesa Pledger, Dirk Keysser, Brady Kirchberg, Maria Panoski and Sienna Sternick. The show will be directed by Bruce Ornstein, who will produce along with Richard Neustadter.
Different Animals revolves around Jessica Tarver (Pledger), a rom-com devotee who finds herself with a failed business venture, disappointing marriage and adulterous Olive Garden tryst in a small South Carolina town. Also along for the ride are her husband Leo (Keysser), his unstable bisexual companion Molly (Rosebrock) and Jessica’s liberal activist Lutheran pastor friend William (Kirchberg).
