Creative Team & Dates Set for Kenny Leon-Directed HOME on Broadway

Roundabout Theatre Company has revealed the creative team and dates for the new Broadway production of Home by Samm-Art Williams, directed by Kenny Leon.

 

The creative team for Home will include: Arnulfo Maldonado (Set), Dede Ayite (Costumes), Allen Lee Hughes (Lighting), and Justin Ellington (Sound).

 

Home will begin preview performances on Friday, May 17, 2024, and open officially on Wednesday, June 5, 2024, at the American Airlines Theatre / Todd Haimes Theatre (227 West 42nd Street). This is a limited engagement through Sunday, July 28, 2024.

 

Cephus Miles has the whole world in his callused hands—until his sweetheart Pattie Mae goes off to college and marries another man. Originally staged by the Negro Ensemble Company in 1979, and featured in the first year of Roundabout’s Refocus Project, Samm-Art Williams’ Home is a muscular and melodic coming-of-age story that gives voice to the unbreakable spirit of all Americans who have been searching for a place to belong. Kenny Leon (A Soldier’s Play) directs.

 

The cast for Home will be announced at a later date.

Home will play Tuesday through Saturday evening at 8:00PM with Wednesday and Saturday matinees at 2:00PM and Sunday matinees at 3:00PM.
