Wohoo, post number 400 announcing the new theater project of Kathryn.

Daniel Talbott's Yosemite to feature Kathryn Erbe Off-Broadway

Tony Award nominee Kathryn Erbe, Seth Numrich, Noah Galvin and Libby Woodbridge will appear in the world premiere of Daniel Talbott's Yosemite, which will begin Off-Broadway previews Jan. 18, 2012, at the Rattlestick Theater.

Pedro Pascal (underneathmybed, Flaca Loves Bone) will direct the four-actor drama about siblings who gather in the snowy woods to face a family secret. Yosemite will officially open Jan. 26, 2012, for a run through Feb. 26, 2012.

Kathryn Erbe (The Speed of Darkness, "Law & Order: Criminal Intent") will play Julie, with Numrich (War Horse, Blind) as Jake, Galvin (The Burnt Part Boys, Ace) as Jer and Woodbridge (Jerusalem, Gabriel) as Ruby.

"Yosemite," according to the Rattlestick, "tells the story of three siblings who are sent out into the snow-silent woods in the Sierra Nevada foothills to dig a hole that will be deep enough to bury a family secret. As they dig, they search for a way to escape or be rescued from their lives as the snow continues to fall and the world sinks in around them."

The design team includes Raul Abrego (scenic design), Tristan Raines (costume design), Joel Moritz (lighting design) Janie Bullard (sound design) and Andrew Diaz (properties).

Talbott is an actor, writer, director and producer. He most recently appeared in Tony winner Christine Jones' Theatre for One in Times Square. His plays include Slipping and What Happened When. He is the artistic director of Rising Phoenix Rep.
