NEW YORK, March 25 (UPI) -- New York's Roundabout Theatre Company says actress Megan Mullally has withdrawn from its upcoming production of "Lips Together, Teeth Apart."

No reason was given for her departure.

"We expect to announce replacement casting shortly, and the first preview performance will be delayed as a result. The opening night date remains April 29. All ticketholders scheduled for a canceled preview will be contacted directly once the revised schedule has been confirmed," the company said on its Web site Wednesday.

Directed by Joe Mantello, the show was to begin preview performances April 9 at Manhattan's American Airlines Theatre. The limited engagement is to run through June 20.

"'Lips Together, Teeth Apart' takes place on the elegant deck of a beach house on Fire Island. A brother and sister and their respective spouses attempt to celebrate the Fourth of July with a gnawing uncertainty that makes their affluent habits and petty prejudices sizzle in the summer sun. In this unforgettable comedy, Terrence McNally does for the beach house what Chekhov did for the Russian country estate," a synopisis of the musical said.

The show stars Patton Oswalt, David Wilson Barnes and Lili Taylor.
