Keen Company presents Boy, their spring production, starring Bobby Steggert (Ragtime, Mothers & Sons), Heidi Armbruster (Time Stands Still, Disgraced), Ted Koch (Pillowman, Death of a Salesman, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof), Paul Niebanck (A Walk in The Woods, Barbecue, In the Next Room or the vibrator play), and Rebecca Rittenhouse (Commons of Pensacola,"Blood & Oil"). BroadwayWorld brings you photos from opening night below!

Boy, a co-production with the Drama Desk and Obie Award-winning Ensemble Studio Theatre (William Carden, Artistic Director, Paul A. Slee, Executive Director)/Alfred P. Sloan Foundation Project (Doron Weber, Vice President, Programs and Program Director), began performances February 23rd with opening night set for March 10th. Performances for this limited Off-Broadway engagement at The Clurman Theatre at Theatre Row (410 West 42nd Street, between 9th and 10th Avenues) will continue through April 9th only. The performance will run 90 minutes, no intermission.

Design team will include Sandra Goldmark (set design), Sydney Maresca (costumes), Nick Francone (lighting), Shane Rettig (sound), and Ricola Wille (props); Calleri Casting serves as casting agents for Keen Company.

Inspired by a true story, Boy explores the tricky terrain of finding love amidst the confusion of sexual identity, and the inextricable bond between a doctor and patient. In the 1960s, a well-intentioned doctor convinces the parents of a male infant to raise their son as a girl after a terrible accident. Two decades later, the repercussions of that choice continue to unfold. A story of the blinding power of love and the complicated mystery of one's perception of self, Boy is a moving play that calls into question how we become who we are. Boy was included in Kilroy's 2014 "The List," the results of their annual industry survey of new plays by female or trans playwrights.
