Amanda Peet Joins David Duchovny Next November in "Break of Noon"

I already mentioned that David Duchovny will be in "Break of Noon" this November in New York, then in LA. They just announced Amanda Peet in the cast as well.
If you are a fan of her work (I personally loved her in The Whole Nine Yards - but my taste in movies run decidedly against the grain) then this is a great opportunity to see her.
(the press blurb)
This fall, Amanda Peet (Broadway’s Barefoot In the Park, “Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip”) will appear opposite David Duchovny in the world premiere production of The Break of Noon, Neil LaBute’s seventh collaboration with MCC Theater as Playwright-in-Residence, following the 2009 Tony Award-nominated Best Play, Reasons to be Pretty. Renowned for his darkly-comic morality plays (The Shape of Things, In a Dark Dark House), he teams up again with longtime collaborator, director Jo Bonney (Some Girl(s), Fat Pig), for this exploration of the daunting, sometimes harrowing process of “finding religion.” As previously announced, David Duchovny (“Californication,” “The X-Files”) will star as John Smith, a man who, amidst the chaos and horror of the worst office shooting in American history, sees the face of God. Peet will play two roles in the production, John’s wife ‘Ginger’ and Ginger’s cousin ‘Jesse,’ both struggling to come to terms with the repercussions of John’s revelation. A newcomer to faith, John urgently searches for a modern response to the age-old question: at what cost salvation? Performances begin at the Lucille Lortel Theatre (121 Christopher Street, NYC) on October 28, 2010 and continue through December 12, 2010. An official opening night is set for November 15, 2010. The Break of Noon is a co-production with the Geffen Playhouse (Gil Cates, Producing Director; Randall Arney, Artistic Director; Ken Novice, Managing Director).
