From the producers:
In Noël Coward's classic comedy, matinee idol Garry Essendine (Garber) sits at the center of his own universe. While Garry struggles to plan his upcoming trip to Africa, his elegant London flat is invaded by a love struck ingenue, an adulterous producer and a married seductress, not to mention Garry's estranged wife and a crazed young playwright. Just before Garry escapes, the full extent of his misdemeanors is discovered and all hell breaks loose.
Victor Garber is a four-time Tony Award nominee. A master stage actor, the 60-year-old has also amassed an impressive screen resume in recent years. He starred as Daddy Warbucks in the 1999 TV film version of "Annie," and has had prominent roles on TV's "Alias" and "Eli Stone."
Here's a promotional video featuring Mr. Garber and the show's director, Nicholas Martin:
