Rita Wilson hasn’t been on Broadway since her stint in 2006’s Chicago revival, but she’s returning in 2015 for a role in Larry David’s Fish in the Dark.

The play, which is David’s Broadway debut as both as actor and playwright, is described as “a comedy about a death in the family.” David will star alongside more than 10 other actors, including Wilson and other new additions Ben Shenkman, Lewis J. Stadlen, Marylouise Burke, Jenn Lyon, and Molly Ranson.

Anna D. Shapiro, who directed this year’s Of Mice and Men and This Is Our Youthis set to direct. Previews begin Feb. 2 at Broadway’s Cort Theatre before its March 5 opening.
