Amanda Seyfried is set to star in her first off-Broadway production in Neil LaBute’s The Way We Get By, replacing Tatiana Maslany.

Second Stage Theater said Thursday that Amanda Seyfried is taking over for Mislay, after the Orphan Black star had to pull out of the production due to filming schedule conflicts.

Amanda Seyfried will star opposite Thomas Sadoski — best-known for his roles in Wild, The Newsroom and as a 2009 Tony Award-nominated actor for LaBute's Reasons to Be Pretty — at New York's Second Stage Theatre.

The play recounts the tale of Beth and Doug, two people "who have no difficulty getting dates. But the morning after their steamy hookup at a drunken wedding reception, they find themselves grappling with the rules of attraction, sex and society as they consider what they really know about one another," according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Tony-nominated Leigh Silverman is directing the play, which begins previews on April 28. The world premiere opening is slated for May 20. The limited engagement runs through June 14.

Amanda Seyfried has acted in several film adaptions of Broadway hits, including the role of Cosette in the recent film adaptation of Les Miserables an starring opposite Meryl Streep in Mamma Mia! She is also set to star in the upcoming Ted 2 and Pan.
