The Broadway cast has been announced for the acclaimed gay themed two-part play by Matthew Lopez The Inheritance, which won the 2019 Olivier Award for Best New Play, as well as being honoured in the same category with an Evening Standard Award and London Critics Circle Award. Directed by Stephen Daldry, the Broadway production will see Andrew Burnap, John Benjamin Hickey, Paul Hilton, Samuel H. Levine, and Kyle Soller (2019 Olivier Best Actor winner) reprise their roles, joined by new cast members Jordan Barbour, Jonathan Burke, Darryl Gene Daughtry Jr., Dylan Frederick, Kyle Harris, Carson McCalley, Lois Smith and Arturo Luis Soria.
The Inheritance begins previews at Broadway’s Ethel Barrymore Theater (243 West 47th street) on Friday 27th September 2019 and will officially open on Sunday 17th November 2019.
The play begins with a gathering of young, gay New Yorkers. Each has a story aching to come out. The Inheritance asks how much we owe to those who lived and loved before us, and questions the role we must play for future generations. Brilliantly re-envisioning E. M. Forster’s masterpiece Howards End to 21st-century New York, it follows the interlinking lives of three generations of gay men searching for a community of their own – and a place to call home.
The Inheritance had its world premiere at London’s Young Vic Theatre from 2nd March until 19th May 201 before transferring to the West End, where it played a limited engagement 21st September until 19th January 2019.
