NEW YORK —

Albee is out at the Signature. Foote is in.

The Signature Theatre said Thursday it is replacing the much-anticipated world premiere of Edward Albee's new play "Laying an Egg" with one by Horton Foote.

Michael Wilson, who directed the current Broadway revival of Foote's "The Trip to Bountiful" with Cicely Tyson, will helm Foote's play "The Old Friends." It will star Betty Buckley, Hallie Foote and Lois Smith.

Performances of "The Old Friends" will begin Aug. 20 with a Sept. 12 opening planned.

This is the second time in two years that Signature has had to postpone Albee's "Laying an Egg." In a statement, the company said of the work: "Signature remains committed to premiering in a future season."
