After a critically-acclaimed and sold-out run at the Mitzi Newhouse (closing 08/28), Lincoln Center Theater has decided to move ‘OSLO’ upstairs to the Vivian Beaumont and Broadway, next spring! I’ve accepted their invitation to continue ‘covering’ four of the principal male roles in the production: ‘Hassan Asfour’ (played by Dariush Kashani), ‘Ahmed Qurie’ (Anthony Azizi), ‘Uri Savir’ (Michael Aronov), and ‘Yossi Beilin’ (Adam Dannheisser).
For all the boards I’ve trod, I’d never ‘understudied’ before, and tackling these four roles has been a mammoth, gymnastic task. I’m grateful to LCT and to Bart Sher for the vote of confidence as they introduce J.T. Rogers’ stunning new play to New York.
In addition to the guys I cover, the company is chock-full of fantastic actors: Jennifer Ehle and Jefferson Mays, Daniel Jenkins, Henny Russell and T. Ryder Smith, Daniel Oreskes, Christopher McHale and Jeb Kreager, Angela Pierce, Joe Siravo, Jeff Still, and Jack Koenig. These are hearty, hardy New York actors, all…so, I don’t know how often I’ll be hitting the stage, myself, but follow me on twitter and Instagram for all the late-breaking news next spring!
