Photo Coverage: Meet the Company of Broadway-Bound DISGRACED!
The Pulitzer Prize winning play Disgraced by Ayad Akhtar just began rehearsals tomorrow for its Broadway production this fall. Previews begin on September 27 and opening night is October 23 at the Lyceum Theatre, 149 West 45th Street. In addition to the Pulitzer Prize, Disgraced received Obie and Joseph Jefferson Awards. The company just met the press and BroadwayWorld brings you photos from inside the event below!
The New York Times called Disgraced "a continuously engaging, vitally engaged play" and said that it "bristles with wit and intelligence." The Telegraph (London) called it "intelligent and thought-provoking" and The Times (London) said it was "riveting," "excitingly intelligent" and that it "zings with provocation, wit and understanding."
DISGRACED is the story of a successful Muslim-American lawyer and his wife -- an artist influenced by Islamic imagery -- enjoying their comfortable and successful life on New York's Upper East Side. When a co-worker and her husband come to dinner, what begins as polite table conversation explodes, leaving everyone's relationships and beliefs about race and identity in shards.
