The Pulitzer Prize winning play Disgraced by Ayad Akhtar will have a Broadway production this fall, beginning previews on September 27 and opening on October 23 at the Lyceum Theatre, 149 West 45th Street.

DISGRACED will star Hari Dhillon, Gretchen Mol, Karen Pittman and Josh Radnor. American-born Hari Dhillon starred in the London production of Disgraced as Amir and was called "blazing and dangerous" by the BBC and "riveting" by the Financial Times. Ms. Mol's credits include Neil LaBute's The Shape of Things in London and New York. Ms. Pittman recently appeared in Bruce Norris's Domesticated at Lincoln Center Theater. Mr. Radnor is best known for his portrayal of Ted Mosby on the Emmy Award winning sitcom, "How I Met Your Mother."

Kimberly Senior, who helmed the two previous US productions, will direct. The design team includesJohn Lee Beatty (set), Jennifer Von Mayrhauser (costumes), Ken Posner (lighting), and Jill DuBoff(sound). Disgraced is produced by The Araca Group and Lincoln Center Theater.

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.
