Brandon Jacobs-Jenkins’ APPROPRIATE and A New Play By Paula Vogel Will Play Broadway This Season From Second Stage
Today, Second Stage Theater has announced three productions for its upcoming 45th Anniversary Season. Brandon Jacobs-Jenkins’ APPROPRIATE and an untitled work from Paula Vogel will both play Broadway at the Hayes Theater. The theatre company also announced a world premiere of Spain by Jen Silverman at its Off-Broadway house. Additional season productions will be announced in the coming months.
This fall, Brandon Jacobs-Jenkins will make his Broadway debut when his acclaimed play APPROPRIATE debuts at the Hayes Theater in a brand-new production directed by Lila Neugebauer. The darkly comic American family drama played New York’s Signature Theatre in 2014 where it won the Obie Award for Best New American Play. There was a limited run at London’s Donmar Warehouse back in 2019.
Spring will see the world premiere of a new untitled play by Pulitzer Prize-winner Paula Vogel, directed by Tina Landau at the Hayes Theatre.
At The Tony Kiser Theater in the fall, Tyne Rafaeli will directed the world premiere of Jen Silverman’s Spain. This seductive and funny new play about the art of propaganda and the dangerous ongoing Disinformation Age explores how art can change the world—for better and worse.
Casting and full creative teams will be announced at a later date.
“It’s been 45 years since Second Stage Theater was launched in a small loft space on the Upper West Side and I couldn’t be prouder to announce this trio of plays, including two we commissioned, as part of our 45th Anniversary Season,” said Second Stage Founder and Artistic Director Carole Rothman. “I’m thrilled to celebrate this milestone with these superlative playwrights and directors, continuing Second Stage’s mission of producing plays exclusively by living American writers. We look forward to welcoming audiences to what we know will be a season of world-class productions.”
