The full Broadway casting for Patriots has been announced. The shockingly timely new play is written by Peter Morgan, Directed by three-time Olivier Award winner Rupert Goold. Patriots will open April 22nd, 2024 at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre. Previews will begin April 1st, 2024. 

As previously announced, Tony and Emmy Award nominee Michael Stuhlbarg will star as Boris Berezovsky. Original London cast member Will Keen will make his Broadway debut, recreating his mesmerizing Olivier Award-winning performance as Vladimir Putin. Original London cast member Luke Thallon will also make his Broadway debut as Russian oligarch and politician Roman Abramovich. 

The 18-member cast will also feature Stella Baker as Marina Litvinenko; Ronald Guttman as Professor Perelman; Alex Hurt as Alexander Litvinenko; Rosie Benton as Berezovsky’s Mother & Others; Jeff Biehl as Teacher/FSB Boss & Others; Peter Bradbury as Voloshin/Nurse & Others; Camila Canó-Flaviá as Tatiana/Nina Berezovsky & Others; Marianna Gailus as Katya & Others; Paul Kynman as Korzhakov/Yeltsin & Others; Adam Poss as Lawyer/Home Office & Others; and Nick Rehberger as Assistant/Kahneman & Others. Understudies are Benjamin Bonenfant, Danielle Chaves, Joe Forbrich and Tony Ward.  

Patriots, which won the 2023 Critics’ Circle Award for Best New Play, comes to Broadway following a record-breaking run at London’s Almeida Theatre where it was the fastest-selling new play in the theatre’s history, and a sold out 12-week run in the West End at the Noël Coward Theatre, where it recouped its investment. 

In 1991, after the fall of the Soviet Union, the new Russia belongs to its oligarchs – and no one is more powerful than billionaire Boris Berezovsky. “If the politicians cannot save Russia,” he insists, “then we businessmen must.” When an eventual successor to President Boris Yeltsin is needed, Berezovsky turns to the little-known deputy mayor of St. Petersburg, Vladimir Putin (Keen). But soon Putin’s ruthless rise threatens Berezovsky’s reign, setting off a riveting, near-Shakespearean confrontation between the two powerful, fatally flawed men.

The creative team for Patriots features three-time Tony Award nominated set designer Miriam Buether, co-costume designers Deborah Andrews and Miriam Buether, lighting designer Jack Knowles, Tony Award-winning sound designer and composer Adam Cork, projection designer Ash J Woodward and movement director Polly Bennett. Production Stage Manager is Scott Rollison. Casting is by Jim Carnahan, CSA. US general management is by TT Partners.
