The actresses will join Chloe Grace Moretz in Steven Soderbergh's off-Broadway production of the new play by Scott Z. Burns at New York's Public Theater, opening in April.

NEW YORK – Casting is complete for Steven Soderbergh's production of The Library, with Lili Taylor and Jennifer Westfeldt among those joining previously announced lead Chloe Grace Moretz in the ensemble of Scott Z. Burns' new drama about gun violence and our relationship to truth and lies.

Ben Livingston, Michael O'Keefe, Daryl Sabara, David Townsend and Tamara Tunie will also be featured in the play's world-premiere production, which stars Moretz as a girl who survives a deadly high school shooting and struggles to tell her story amid the ensuing media circus.

Burns has been a repeat collaborator, as screenwriter, with Soderbergh, on Side Effects, Contagion and The Informant! The production marks the New York stage debuts of both the writer and the director, as well as Moretz.

The limited engagement begins previews at off-Broadway's Public Theater on March 25, with its official opening set for April 15. The production was co-developed and supported by the Kennedy/Marshall Company.
