Elizabeth Reaser will step in for Heather Graham in the off-Broadway production of The Money Shot, according to The New York Times. As previously reported, Graham has departed the Neil LaBute project in order to work on her film, Half Magic. Performances will begin on September 4 at the Lucille Lortel Theater, where it will run through October 12. Opening night for the MCC production is set for September 22.
Reaser most recently appeared off-Broadway in How I Learned to Drive. Her additional stage credits include Top Girls and The Winter’s Company. On screen, she has appeared in Young Adult, The Art of Getting By, Puccini for Beginners, True Detective, The Good Wife, Grey’s Anatomy and the Twilight series.
The Money Shot, directed by Terry Kinney, tells the story of Karen and Steve, two glamorous movie stars with one thing in common: desperation. The night before filming a big scene for the latest film by a hot shot European director, the two meet with their respective partners to make an important decision: how far will they let themselves go to keep from slipping further down the Hollywood food chain?
Reaser joins a cast that also includes Frederick Weller, Gia Crovatin and Callie Thorne.
