Justin Long joins the cast of Do You Feel Anger? at Vineyard Theatre
The New York premiere of Do You Feel Anger? begins performances at off-Broadway's Vineyard Theatre on March 13, 2019.
Screen favorite Justin Long is set to return to the New York stage this spring, joining the previously announced cast of Vineyard Theatre's upcoming New York premiere of Do You Feel Anger?. Written by Mara Nelson-Greenberg and directed by Margot Bordelon, the play is set to begin previews on March 13, 2019, ahead of an official opening on March 31 and a limited run through to April 20, 2019.
Justin Long is perhaps best known for his movie roles in films such as "Galaxy Quest," "Jeepers Creepers," "Accepted," "Die Hard 4.0," "Tusk," "Alvin and the Chipmunks," and many more. He made his Broadway debut in Theresa Rebeck's Seminar in April 2012 and has also participated in the popular "24 Hour Plays" series in 2003, 2004, and 2008.
The rest of the cast includes (in alphabetical order) Tom Aulino (as Old Man), Ugo Chukwu (as Jordan), Megan Hill (as Eva), Greg Keller (as Jon), and Tiffany Villarin (as Sophia), with additional casting to be announced shortly.
Synopsis: "In this dazzling dark comedy, Sofia (played by Ms. Villarin) is hired as an empathy coach at a debt collection agency -- and clearly, she has her work cut out for her. These employees can barely identify what an emotion is, much less practice deep, radical compassion for others. As they painstakingly stumble towards enlightenment, someone keeps mugging Eva in the kitchen, and the unspoken dynamics of their seemingly blithe workplace culture become increasingly unsettling. Do You Feel Anger? reminds us that change is not always easy, and may come with unexpected costs."
The creative team behind Do You Feel Anger? features scenic design by Laura Jellinek, costume design by Emilio Sosa, lighting design by Marie Yokoyama, and sound design by Palmer Hefferan.
Do You Feel Anger? staged its world premiere at the 2018 Humana Festival of New American Plays at Actors Theatre of Louisville.
Vineyard Theatre's next production is the world premiere of Jeremy O. Harris' "Daddy", co-produced by The New Group. Directed by Danya Taymor, the new play stars 2-time Golden Globe nominee and Tony Award winner Alan Cumming and is set to begin previews at Performances Pershing Square Signature Center's Romulus Linney Courtyard Theatre on February 12, 2019, ahead of an official opening on March 5 and a limited engagement through to March 31, 2019.
Do You Feel Anger? Tickets are available now for performances from March 13 through to April 20, 2019.
