Artistic director Tim Sanford says the play by Melissa James Gibson will open Dec. 13 as scheduled at the off-Broadway theater. Previews begin Nov. 6. A replacement for Posey will be announced shortly.
"This" concerns the tribulations of a poet who happens to be a single mother, struggling with her love life and the well-meaning attention of good friends.
The 40-year-old Posey is an indie film favorite. She has appeared in such movies as "Waiting for Guffman" and "Best in Show."
