Roundabout Theatre Company has now confirmed complete casting for the upcoming world premiere of 72 Miles to Go..., the debut play by Juilliard playwright Hillary Bettis, which is set to begin previews at the Laura Pels Theatre at the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre on February 13, 2020, ahead of an official opening on March 10 and a limited engagement through May 3, 2020.

The cast includes Tyler Alvarez (as Aaron), Jacqueline Guillén (as Eva), Bobby Moreno (as Christian), Maria Elena Ramirez (as Anita), and Triney Sandoval (as Billy).

Synopsis: "Seventy-two miles. That’s the space between Nogales, Mexico and Tucson, Arizona—and the world of distance that separates a mother at a shelter and her American-born husband and children. 72 Miles to Go... follows a splintered family over 10 years of strength, struggle and love, as they face the profoundly personal drama of immigration."

Under the direction of Jo Bonney, the creative team features scenic design by Rachel Hauck, costume design by Emilio Sosa, lighting design by Lap Chi Chu, and sound design by Elisheba Ittoop.

Roundabout's 2019-2020 season also includes the Broadway premieres of A Soldier's Play, starring David Alan Grier and Blair Underwood, and Birthday Candles, starring Debra Messing, at the American Airles Theatre, as well as the Roundabout Underground productions of Darling Grenadine and Exception to the Rule at the Black Box Theatre and ...what the end will be at the Laura Pels Theatre.

72 Miles to Go... Tickets are available now for performances from February 13 through May 3, 2020.
