Julianne Nicholson (pictured)—previously of Ally McBeal, lately Detective Megan Wheeler on Law & Order: Criminal Intent and currently starring in Brief interviews with Hideous Men—will, per ArtsBeat, be replacing Parker Posey in the upcoming premiere of Melissa James Gibson’s This at Playwrights Horizons.

Posey, you may recall, was slated to star alongside L Mag favorite Louis Cancelmi in the Off Broadway production until she had to cancel after coming down with Lyme disease (no word yet on how that’s working out). All of which amounts to the replacement of an established indie favorite with someone who—given the mostly positive press Hideous Men is receiving—will likely be an indie favorite in no time. Previews of This begin on November 6 and the show runs through December 13 (although expect at least one extension).
