Producers Jeffrey Richards and Jerry Frankel said Wednesday former Mayor Rudy Giuliani's ex-wife had signed up for a role in the play along with Jefferson Mays and Dakin Matthews.
The ensemble is to begin rehearsals Jan. 30, with the first preview performance planned for March 6 and opening night set for April 1 at Manhattan's Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre.
The play is about "power, ambition, political secrets, ruthlessness and the race for the presidency," a synopsis said. It "is set at the national convention where two candidates are vying for their party's nomination during the primary season. It's an inside look at the dirt-digging, double-dealing, triple-crossing chicanery of presidential electioneering and what could be more fun in a presidential campaign season than these theatrical fireworks."
