Michael Urie and Grace Gummer have officially joined the cast of the Off Broadway revival of A Bright Room Called Day. This revival is the first New York production of Tony Kushner's A Bright Room Called Day since 1991.
Other cast members in the show include Linda Emond, Jonathan Hadary, Estelle Parsons, Michael Esper, Nikki M. James, Crystal Lucas-Perry, Nadine Malouf, Mark Margolis and Max Woertendyke.
Oskar Eustis, the Public Theater artistic director, will be directing the play. And the production will feature scenic design by David Rockwell, lighting design by John Torres, sound design by Bray Poor, projection design by Lucy Mackinnon and co-costume design by Susan Hilferty and Sarita Fellows.
According to the Public Theater the play is a “revisit” of the “epic work that takes a piercing look at the vulnerability of American democracy, and demands to know: when the devil takes up residence in your country…will you act?”
Previews will begin at the Public Theater Tuesday, October 29th, 2019 and the opening night will be on Tuesday, November 19th, 2019. The show will close Sunday, December 15th, 2019.
