The Wire actor Andre Royo will star in a new production of Eric Bogosian’s Drinking in America. Drinking in America begins previews at the Minetta Lane Theatre on March 10, ahead of an opening night on March 19, and performances to April 8.

Royo will play over a dozen characters in Drinking in America. The play explores society’s expectations of what makes a man, with press material stating: “this critically acclaimed work takes on a new persona in our present day, with terms like toxic masculinity and male fragility at the forefront of the zeitgeist.”

Eric Bogosian’s Drinking in America is part of Audible Theater’s fifth season of shows at the Minetta Lane Theatre, including Lucy.

Royo is best known for playing Reginald “Bubbles” Cousins in The Wire. He’s also starred in Truth Be Told for Apple TV+, and With Love for Amazon.

Mark Armstrong directs, with set design by Kristen Robinson, costume design by Sarita Fellows, lighting design by Jeff Croiter, and sound design by John Gromada.
