'Orphan Black' star Tatiana Maslany eyes stage

NEW YORK (AP) — Tatiana Maslany, the star of "Orphan Black," will be finding a temporary home on an off-Broadway stage.

Second Stage Theatre said Tuesday that the BBC America star will appear beside Tony Award nominee and "The Newsroom" actor Thomas Sadoski in Neil LaBute's world premiere "The Way We Get By."

The play will be directed by Leigh Silverman, who was nominated for a Tony Award last season for her direction of "Violet." Previews begin May 12.

Maslany, who plays varied clones of her main character on "Orphan Black," just finished filming "The Woman in Gold." In that, she stars alongside Helen Mirren and Ryan Reynolds.

LaBute's plays include "Reasons to Be Happy" and "The Money Shot." His movies include "Your Friends and Neighbors" and "Nurse Betty."
