The revival of J.B. Priestley’s 1937 drama will also star Tony nominee Steven Boyer and Tony winner Gabriel Ebert. The ensemble cast will include Charlotte Parry, Matthew James Thomas, Anna Baryshnikov, Brooke Bloom, Alfredo Narciso and Cara Ricketts.
Previews begin Sept. 14 at the American Airlines Theatre, ahead of the play’s Oct. 10 opening night. The limited engagement is scheduled to run through Nov. 26.
Directed by Rebecca Taichman, the play considers the history of Britain through the prism of a moneyed Yorkshire family and its changing fortunes, beginning in 1919 with the promise of prosperity at the end of the Great War. It then jumps forward almost two decades to take in their shattered lives before returning to the original time frame to trace the seeds of the Conways‘ downfall.
Produced by Roundabout Theatre Company, the revival will mark the first appearance of the time-traveling Priestley play on Broadway since its brief 1938 premiere run, when it starred Dame Sybil Thorndike and featured a young Jessica Tandy.
Camp, seen next in the onscreen threequel Pitch Perfect 3, first made her Broadway debut in the 2008 revival of The Country Girl, starring Morgan Freeman and Frances McDormand. She last appeared on Broadway in the 2009 revival of Equus, opposite Daniel Radcliffe and Kate Mulgrew. She is repped by UTA and Authentic Talent and Literary Management.
Boyer, who is featured in the NBC sitcom Trial & Error opposite John Lithgow, earned a Tony nomination for his Broadway debut in the 2015 dark comedy Hand to God. He is repped by Stone Manners Salners Agency and Bleecker Street Entertainment.
Ebert, the seasoned stage actor who won a Tony for 2013’s Matilda the Musical, was last on Broadway in the 2015 play Therese Raquin opposite Keira Knightley and Judith Light. He most recently appeared in the HBO film The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks and co-starred in the off-Broadway play Gently Down the Stream with Harvey Fierstein. He is repped by Stone Manners Salners Agency.
