The New York Premiere of Donald Margulies' Long Lost will begin performances at New York City Center on May 14, 2019.
Manhattan Theatre Club has now revealed complete casting for its previously announced New York premiere of Long Lost, written by Pulitzer Prize winner Donald Margulies and directed by Tony Award winner Daniel Sullivan, which is scheduled to begin previews at New York City Center's Stage I begin on May 14, 2019, ahead of an official opening on June 4 and limited engagement through to June 30, 2019.
The cast of Long Lost includes Kelly AuCoin (as David), Annie Parisse (as Molly), Lee Tergesen (as Billy), and Alex Wolff (as Jeremy).
Mr. AuCoin has appeared on Broadway in the 2005 revival of Julius Caesar and his recent off-Broadway credits include Manhattan Theatre Club's Of Good Stock, Signature Theatre's The Wayside Motor Inn and Playwrights Horizons/Primary Stages' The Call. Ms. Parisse's Broadway credits include Clybourne Park in 2012 and Prelude to a Kiss in 2007 and in 2016 she appeared in Second Stage Theater's The Layover and Playwrights Horizons' Antlia Pneumatica.

Finally, Mr. Wolff is perhaps best known for his role as Peter in the 2018 hit horror movie "Hereditary".
Synopsis: "Long Lost is a funny, unsettling, ultimately moving play about the limits of compassion and filial obligation. When troubled Billy appears out-of-the-blue in his estranged brother David’s Wall Street office, he soon tries to re-insert himself into the comfortable life David has built with his philanthropist wife and college-age son. What does Billy really want? Can he be trusted? And how much can family bonds smooth over past rifts?"
The creative team has also been announced and features scenic design by John Lee Beatty, costume design by Toni-Leslie James, lighting design by Kenneth Posner, and original music and sound design by Daniel Kluger.
Playwright Donald Margulies and director Daniel Sullivan have previously collaborated on productions of The Country House, Brooklyn Boy, the Tony Award-nominated play Time Stands Still, the Pulitzer Prize finalist Sight Unseen, and the Pulitzer Prize-winning drama Dinner with Friends.
Manhattan Theatre Club's current New York premiere of The Cake, starring Debra Jo Rupp, plays its final performance at New York City Center's Stage I this Sunday, March 31, 2019.
