Krumholtz, Arty Froushan, Caissie Levy and Tedra Millan will play their final performances on Sunday, March 12. All were among the original cast when the acclaimed play opened last October. Leopoldstadt is scheduled to run through July 2 at the Longacre Theatre.

Understudies Charlotte Graham replaces Millan as Nellie, and Sarah Killough for Levy in the role of Eva.
Though best known for his breakthrough role on The West Wing, Malina’s credits also include In Plain Sight, The Big Bang Theory, and Inventing Anna, among others.
