NEW YORK (AP) — Fresh off her success in "Pippin," Andrea Martin is stacking up the work.

The new Tony Award-winner has signed on for her next project after doing "Act One" this spring: She's the first star announced in Michael Frayn's Tony-nominated play "Noises Off."

Roundabout Theatre Company said Tuesday that Martin will play the forgetful Dotty in the farce set to begin performances in January 2015 at the American Airlines Theatre on Broadway.

In the show, the audience follows the misfortunes of a c-list British troupe as it rehearses, performs and tours a British sex farce called "Nothing On."

Before then, Martin will appear on Broadway in "Act One," the play adapted from the autobiography of legendary writer and director Moss Hart. Previews begin March 20 at the Vivian Beaumont Theater.
