Two notable television actors — one from a current crime series, the other from a classic sitcom — are set to star in the upcoming production of "Angels in America" at the Repertory Theatre of St. Louis.

Meredith Baxter, known for her role as Elyse Keaton, mother of Alex P. Keaton (Michael J. Fox), on "Family Ties," will play Hannah Pitt. Barrett Foa, who plays intelligence analyst Eric Beale on "NCIS: Los Angeles," has signed on as Prior Walter. 

The cast also includes Peter Frechette, Ben Cherry, Jayson Speters, Valeri Mudek, David Ryan Smith and Gina Daniels.

The Rep will stage Tony Kushner’s modern masterpiece for the first time. Subtitled “A Gay Fantasia on American Themes,” the two-part epic drama won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the Tony Award for best play.

"Angels in America" runs Sept. 4 through Oct. 6. For more information, call 314-968-4925 or visit repstl.org.
