Additional casting has been announced for The New Group's upcoming production of Jonathan Marc Sherman's Clive, which begins a limited Off-Broadway engagement Jan. 17, 2013, at The New Group at Theatre Row (The Acorn Theatre, 410 West 42nd Street).

Joining the previously announced Ethan Hawke in the title role will be Brooks Ashmanskas, Vincent D’Onofrio and Zoe Kazan. Additional casting will be announced.

Also directed by Hawke, the production will officially open Feb. 7 at 7 PM.

Inspired by Bertolt Brecht's inflammatory play Baal,Clive, according to press notes, "tracks a dissipated songwriter in 1990s New York City from the hedonistic heights of seduction and consumption into an ecstasy of self-destruction."

This production reunites playwright Sherman and director Hawke, who teamed previously at The New Group on Things We Want (written by Sherman, directed by Hawke, 2007 extended run).

Performances will be Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday at 7 PM and Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 8 PM with matinees Saturday at 2 PM.

Tickets, on sale in late November, may be arranged through www.telecharge.com or (212) 239-6200, or at the Theatre Row Box Office (12–8 PM daily). Tickets are $60 plus $1.25 restoration fee.
