Tyne Daly To Depart DOUBT: A PARABLE, Oscar Nominee Amy Ryan Set To Replace
The show must go on! Tyne Daly will be departing Roundabout Theatre’s production of Doubt: A Parable which is currently in previews. Television star Amy Ryan is set to replace her on Tuesday, February 13.
Ms. Daly was unexpectedly hospitalized on Friday and unfortunately needs to withdraw from the production while she receives medical care; she is thankfully expected to make a full recovery.
For performances through Sunday, February 11, the role of “Sister Aloysius” will be played by the understudy, Tony Award nominee Isabel Keating.
“With respect and admiration for Tyne, we wish her the best and a quick recovery. We are grateful that Amy Ryan said yes – in a quick minute – to join our company and take on the role of ‘Sister Aloysius.’ We deeply appreciate Isabel Keating, who remarkably stepped in with a day of rehearsal and allowed us to get the production up on its feet during this first week of performances,” notes director Scott Ellis.
Sister Aloysius, the principal of a Catholic school in a working-class part of the Bronx, is feared by students and colleagues alike. But when she suspects nefarious relations between the charismatic priest Father Flynn and a student, she’s forced to wrestle with what’s fact, what’s fiction, and how much she’ll risk to expose the difference—all the while wrestling with her own bone-deep doubts.
