Christina Lang cast as Billie Dawn in Born Yesterday

The Garson Kanin comedy may not arrive until next April at ARt's Spartan Theatre space, but the crucial role of Billie Dawn will be performed by a woman who did an outstanding job as a blonde last season -- last year's Mae West in Dirty Blonde, and a veteran of about 10 shows over the last dozen years in Spokane, Christina Lang.
Michael Weaver will play Harry Brock -- the hulking, corrupt garbage magnate who arrives in Washington, D.C., to bribe a senator and get some favorable legislation passed. Problem is, Harry's dumb-blonde girlfriend might make him look bad in Washington's social circles. Lang will play Billie, who of course only _appears_ to have been born yesterday.
