The Public Theater has named the cast for its spring production of Jordans off Broadway, which runs from April 11 to May 5. Opening night is April 24.

Playwright Ife Olujobi's show centers on a Black receptionist in an almost entirely white workplace, which soon hires a second Black employee to improve its image and "culture." Due to their race, ambition, and other circumstances, the two employees end up on a collision course for recognition and survival.

The cast of Jordans includes Brontë England-Nelson as Emma and others, Naomi Lorrain as Jordan, Brian Muller as Fletcher and others, Toby Onwumere as 1.Jordan, Matthew Russell as Fletcher and others, Ryan Spahn as Ryan and others, Meg Steedle as Maggie and others, and Kate Walsh as Hailey. Quinn M. Johnson, Devin Kessler, and Kai Tshikosi are understudies, and more will be announced soon.

Director Whitney White leads a creative team that also includes scenic designer Matt Saunders, costume designer Qween Jean, lighting designer Cha See, sound designer Fan Zhang, hair and wig designer Nikiya Mathis, special effects designer Lillis Meeh, prop manager Claire M. Kavanah, intimacy director Kelsey Rainwater, and fight director UNKLE DAVE’S FIGHT HOUSE.
