Second Stage Theatre said Thursday that Amanda Seyfried will replace BBC America star Tatiana Maslany in the world premiere of Neil LaBute's "The Way We Get By." Maslany, star of "Orphan Black," withdrew due to schedule conflicts.

Previews begin April 28 under the direction of Leigh Silverman. Seyfried will star opposite Thomas Sadoski as lovers who hook up during a drunken wedding reception.

Seyfried , who appeared as Cosette in the recent film adaptation of "Les Miserables," will be making her off-Broadway debut. She's starred in the film "Mamma Mia!" with Meryl Streep and "Mean Girls." She'll be in the upcoming "Ted 2" and "Pan."
