Golden Globe Award winner Oscar Isaac and Emmy winner Rachel Brosnahan star in Lorraine Hansberry’s The Sign in Sidney Brustein's Window. Check back for information on The Sign in Sidney Brustein's Window tickets on New York Theatre Guide.
The Sign in Sidney Brustein's Window is a play about a couple living in Greenwich Village in the 1960s. They and their friends, particularly Sidney, are staunch in their progressive beliefs and dreams, even though they're far from realistic. Sidney's marriage to his wife Iris, which thrives on passion and wit, is put to the ultimate test when he gets involved with a local political campaign that threatens to change them both.
The Sign in Sidney Brustein's Window premiered on Broadway in 1964 and was briefly revived in 1972. Gabriel Dell and Rita Moreno starred in the original production, and Hal Linden and Zohra Lampert led the revival. The 1964 premiere was the second, and last, show of Hansberry's to premiere on Broadway before her death at 34; A Raisin in the Sun, her most famous work, was the first.
The Sign in Sidney Brustein's Window has not been revived on a major New York stage since those two early productions. Director Anne Kauffman revived the show in 2016 at Chicago’s Goodman Theatre, and she returns to direct The Sign in Sidney Brustein's Window off Broadway.
Starring as Sidney this time around is Oscar Isaac, who won a Golden Globe Award for starring in Show Me a Hero and is also known for roles in Marvel's Moon Knight, the most recent Star Wars trilogy, Scenes From a Marriage, and Inside Llewyn Davis.
Opposite Isaac as Iris is Rachel Brosnahan, the Emmy Award-winning title star of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. She is also known for screen appearances in Dead for a Dollar and I'm Your Woman.
