Hugh Dancy, Megalyn Echikunwoke, Talene Monahon, and John Tillinger Will Join Stockard Channing in APOLOGIA
Roundabout Theatre Company has announced the complete cast of the Off-Broadway premiere production of Apologia, by Alexi Kaye Campbell (The Pride), with direction by three-time Obie Award winner Daniel Aukin (Bad Jews, Skintight). Joining the previously announced Tony & Emmy Award winner Stockard Channing as "Kristin" are Hugh Dancy as "Peter" and "Simon," Megalyn Echikunwoke as "Claire," Talene Monahon as "Trudi," and John Tillinger as "Hugh."
APOLOGIA will begin preview performances Off-Broadway on September 27, 2018, and open officially on October 16, 2018 at the Laura Pels Theatre in the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre (111 West 46th Street). This will be a limited engagement through December 16, 2018.
Direct from London, Alexi Kaye Campbell's biting play makes its New York debut with the "Magnificent" (The Independent) Stockard Channing in a powerhouse performance as a woman facing the repercussions of her past. You do not mess with Kristin Miller (Channing). In the 1960s, she was a radical activist and political protester. Now a celebrated art historian, the publication of her memoir threatens to split her family apart. But Kristin has never been one to shy away from a fight. Apologia is a passionate, human and humorous clash of generations and beliefs-a lively look at yesterday's rebels living in today's reality.
A longtime friend of Roundabout Theatre Company, Stockard Channing returns to the theater following her Tony nominated performances in Pal Joey (2008), The Lion in Winter (1999) and Joe Egg (1985, Tony Award Best
