Casting is complete for Patriots on Broadway, a drama by The Crown creator Peter Morgan, which makes its U.S. premiere after an award-winning London run. Performances begin April 1 ahead of an April 22 opening at the Barrymore Theatre.

As previously announced, Tony and Emmy Award nominee Michael Stuhlbarg will star as Boris Berezovsky alongside two original cast members from London: Will Keen, reprising his Olivier Award-winning performance as Vladimir Putin, and Luke Thallon as Roman Abramovich. Keen and Thallon are making their Broadway debuts.

Newly announced cast members include Stella Baker as Marina Litvinenko, Ronald Guttman as Professor Perelman, Alex Hurt as Alexander Litvinenko, Rosie Benton as Berezovsky’s Mother, Jeff Biehl as Teacher/FSB Boss, Peter Bradbury as Voloshin/Nurse, Camila Canó-Flaviá as Tatiana/Nina Berezovsky, Marianna Gailus as Katya, Paul Kynman as Korzhakov/Yeltsin, Adam Poss as Lawyer/Home Office, and Nick Rehberger as Assistant/Kahneman. All but Baker, Guttman, and Hurt also play other roles.

Benjamin Bonenfant, Danielle Chaves, Joe Forbrich, and Tony Ward are understudies.

On the creative side, joining previously announced director Rupert Goold are set designer Miriam Buether, costume designers Deborah Andrews and Buether, lighting designer Jack Knowles, sound designer and composer Adam Cork, projection designer Ash J Woodward, and movement director Polly Bennett.

Patriots centers on the major power struggle between Vladimir Putin, current president and dictator of Russia, and Boris Berezovsky, the man who put Putin into power and later became one of his fiercest public critics.
