The Coyote Ugly star will tread the boards at New York's MCC Theater for the premiere of John Pollono's Lost Girls, about a divorced couple whose teenage daughter goes missing in a storm.

The production will be directed by Jo Bonney and co-star Girls regular Ebon Moss-Bachrach and actresses Megan Fahey and Tasha Lawrence.

Previews will begin on 22 October (15).

It's not the first time Perabo has worked with the MCC Theater - she made her stage debut in a 2008 production of Neil LaBute's Reasons to be Pretty.
