Roundabout Theatre Company has canceled the first Broadway preview of “Doubt” due to a non-COVID-related illness. The previously announced revival of John Patrick Shanley’s Tony Award- and Pulitzer Prize-winning play was originally scheduled to begin on Feb. 2 at 8:00 p.m. Ticket holders can contact their point of purchase for further information. Previews will now begin on Feb. 3 at 8:00 p.m. at the newly named Todd Haimes Theatre.
Tony nominee Scott Ellis is directing the production, slated to open on Feb. 29 and play a limited run through April 14. Set in the Bronx in the mid-1960s, “Doubt” follows Sister Aloysius, the principal of an all-boys Catholic school, as she reckons with the allegations of a priest, Father Flynn, carrying on harmful relations with a student.
The cast includes Tony Award winners Tyne Daly and Liev Schreiber as Sister Aloysius and Father Flynn, respectively. Rounding out the company are Quincy Tyler Bernstine as Mrs. Muller and Zoe Kazan as Sister James.
“Doubt” is being produced by Roundabout Theatre Company, for which Ellis serves as interim artistic director.
