NEW YORK, N.Y. - "Kinky Boots" star Billy Porter's new play has attracted some fearsome talent — Emmy Award-winner S. Epatha Merkerson and Tony Award-winner Lillias White.

Primary Stages said Wednesday that "While Yet I Live" will star Merkerson, White, Elain Graham, Susan Heyward, Kevyn Morrow, Sharon Washington and Larry Powell. Sheryl Kaller will direct the play, which is about a young man's coming of age in Pittsburgh.

The off-Broadway theatre also revealed the cast of "Smash" creator Theresa Rebeck's new play, "Poor Behaviour." The comedy about two couples spending a not-so-idyllic weekend in the country will star Heidi Armbruster, Brian Avers, Jeff Biehl and Katie Kressler. Evan Cabnet will direct.

Primary Stages, celebrating its 30th season, will also offer "Lives of the Saints," reuniting playwright David Ives and director John Rando.
