Manhattan Theatre Club announces cast for 'Prayer for the French Republic' off Broadway
The show will play New York City Center from January 11 to February 27.
Manhattan Theatre Club's world-premiere production of Prayer for the French Republic has announced its full ensemble cast. Betsy Aidem, Yair Ben-Dor, Francis Benhamou, Ari Brand, Pierre Epstein, Peyton Lusk, Molly Ranson, Nancy Robinette, Jeff Seymour, Kenneth Tigar, and Richard Topol will perform in Joshua Harmon's new play.
David Cromer directs Prayer for the French Republic, which follows five generations of a French Jewish family, beginning with a couple living in Paris in 1944. That couple, their great-grandchildren, and all the generations in between face the same uncertainty of whether they are safe in the land they call home. The play explores the lasting effects of old hatred through the lens of a single family.
The creative team includes scenic designer Takeshi Kata, costume designer Sarah Laux, lighting designer Amith Chandrashaker, sound designers Lee Kinney and Daniel Kluger, and composer Daniel Kluger.
