Disgraced, Ayad Akhtar’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play, will have a Broadway run at the Lyceum Theatre, with previews beginning Sept. 27 in advance of an Oct. 23rd opening. The play about a Muslim-American lawyer and his wife forced to confront issues of race and identity during a dinner party premiered at Chicago’s American Theater Company. It also played Off-Broadway at LCT3/Lincoln Center Theater, and London’s Bush Theatre. In addition to the 2013 Pulitzer Prize, Disgraced has won Obie and Jefferson Awards.
The Broadway cast will star Hari Dhillon, Gretchen Mol, Karen Pittman and Josh Radnor. American-born Hari Dhillon starred in the London production. Mol’s stage credits include Neil LaBute’s The Shape of Things in London and New York. Pittman recently appeared in Bruce Norris’s Domesticated at Lincoln Center Theater. Radnor is best known for his portrayal of Ted Mosby on CBS’s Emmy-winning sitcom, How I Met Your Mother. He was previously on Broadway in 2002 in the revival of The Graduate. Kimberly Senior, who helmed the two previous U.S. productions, will direct.
