Elle Fanning Joins APPROPRIATE On Broadway
Branden Jacobs-Jenkins’ Appropriate is shaping up to be the performance of the fall. This morning, it was announced that Emmy and Golden Globe nominee Elle Fanning will make her Broadway debut in the production, directed by Lila Neugebauer.
Fanning joins the previously announced Natalie Gold, Alyssa Emily Marvin, Sarah Paulson, and Corey Stoll.
Additional casting will be announced at a later date.
It’s summer, the cicadas are singing, and the Lafayette family has returned to their late patriarch’s Arkansas home to deal with the remains of his estate. Toni (Paulson), the eldest daughter, hopes they’ll spend the weekend remembering and reconnecting over their beloved father. Bo (Stoll), her brother, wants to recoup some of the funds he spent caring for Dad at the end of his life. But things take a turn when their estranged brother, Franz, appears late one night, and mysterious objects are discovered among the clutter. Suddenly, long-hidden secrets and buried resentments can’t be contained, and the family is forced to face the ghosts of their past.
Appropriate features scenic design by dots, costume design by Dede Ayite, lighting design by Jane Cox, and sound design by Will Pickens and Bray Poor.
The production will begin previews at Second Stage’s Hayes Theater on November 29th, ahead of an official opening on Deceber 18.
