All aboard The Coast Starlight! Lincoln Center Theater will present this new play to kick off its spring season. Performances begin February 16 ahead of a March 13 opening night at the Mitzi E. Newhouse Theater.

The Coast Starlight is named for the long-distance train that runs between Seattle and Los Angeles. A man riding that train is hiding a secret that could get him in trouble, and on his thousand-mile trip, his fellow passengers help him figure out what to do.

The cast includes Mia Barron, Camila Canó-Flaviá, Rhys Coiro, Will Harrison, Jon Norman Schneider, and Michelle Wilson. The creative team includes set designer Arnulfo Maldonado, costume designer Ásta Bennie Hostetter, lighting designer Lap Chi Chu, composer and sound designer Daniel Kluger, and projection designer 59 Productions.

The show marks playwright Keith Bunin's Lincoln Center Theater debut. Three of his works previously premiered at another Off-Broadway theatre, Playwrights Horizons: The Busy World is Hushed, The Credeaux Canvas, and The World Over.

Tyne Rafaeli directs The Coast Starlight in New York after directing its premiere at La Jolla Playhouse. At LCT, she directed Epiphany in summer 2022; elsewhere, she directed Pulitzer Prize finalist Selling Kabul and Usual Girls.
