Sarah Paulson to Star in APPROPRIATE on Broadway
Now this is the news we want. Second Stage Theater has announced that Sarah Paulson will return to Broadway starring in Branden Jacobs-Jenkins’ Appropriate, directed by Lila Neugebauer. This production marks Paulson’s return to the New York stage since she was last seen co-starring opposite Danny Burstein in Lanford Wilson’s Talley’s Folly in 2013.
Part of Second Stage’s 45th Anniversary Season, Appropriate will begin previews Tuesday, November 28th and will officially open on Monday, December 18th at Second Stage’s Hayes Theater. This production marks Jacobs-Jenkins’ Broadway debut.
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, the eldest daughter, hopes they’ll spend the weekend remembering and reconnecting over their beloved father. Bo, 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.
Additional casting and creative team members will be announced in the coming weeks.
Paulson's other stage appearances include the Broadway productions of Collected Stories, opposite Linda Lavin, and The Glass Menagerie alongside Jessica Lange; the Mark Taper Forum production of The Cherry Orchard opposite Alfred Molina and Annette Bening; and off-Broadway in Tracy Letts’ critically acclaimed Killer Joe.
