Final casting has been announced for the first Broadway revival of John Patrick Shanley’s Tony Award- and Pulitzer Prize-winning 2005 play “Doubt.” The previously announced production, directed by Scott Ellis, will play Roundabout Theatre Company’s American Airlines Theatre. Roundabout has also shared a first-preview date of Feb. 2 ahead of an opening night of Feb. 29; the production will play a limited run through Apr. 14.
Newly announced cast members include Quincy Tyler Bernstine in the role of Mrs. Muller and Zoe Kazan as Sister James. They’ll appear alongside previously announced Tony winners Tyne Daly as Sister Aloysius and Liev Schreiber as Father Flynn.
Bernstine was last seen on Broadway in “In the Next Room (or the Vibrator Play)”; her Off-Broadway credits include a Lortel Award-winning turn in “Marys Seacole” and an Obie Award-winning performance in “Ruined.” Kazan’s previous Broadway credits include “A Behanding in Spokane,” “The Seagull” and “Come Back, Little Sheba”; she won a Clarence Derwent Award for Off-Broadway performances in “Things We Want” and “100 Saints You Should Know.”
“Doubt” tells the story of Sister Aloysius (Daly), the principal of an all-boys Catholic school in a working-class neighborhood of the Bronx. When she believes that Father Flynn (Schreiber) is carrying on harmful relations with a student, Sister Aloysius is forced to confront harsh truths with the student’s mother (Bernstine). Sharing doubts with Sister Aloysius is the young nun Sister James (Kazan).
The production’s newly announced design team includes Tony winners David Rockwell (sets), Linda Cho (costumes) and Kenneth Posner (lights), with Tony nominee Mikaal Sulaiman (sound).
“Doubt” is being produced by Roundabout Theatre Company (Todd Haimes, president/CEO, in memoriam; Scott Ellis, interim artistic director).
