See new photos of Jesse Williams, Jesse Tyler Ferguson and the 'Take Me Out' Broadway cast
The show begins performances on October 27.
Batter up! After hitting its spring run out of the park at the Hayes Theater, the Tony Award-winning revival of Take Me Out is back for some extra innings this fall. Ahead of the first performance at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre, new photos have been released of the cast in rehearsal.
Second Stage Theater mounted the first revival of Richard Greenberg's Tony-winning play earlier this year, and the production is now having an encore run from October 27 to January 29. Most of the cast from the first run is stepping back up to the plate, including Tony nominee Jesse Williams and Tony winner Jesse Tyler Ferguson. Bill Heck is the sole new member of the cast, replacing Patrick J. Adams.
Take Me Out follows Major League Baseball player Darren Lemming (Williams) as he comes out as gay at the height of his career. Some, like his teammate Kippy (Heck) and business manager Mason (Ferguson), support him, but he also faces widespread discrimination that changes the course of his career.
The 2003 Broadway premiere of Take Me Out won Best Play at the Tonys, and the 2022 revival won Best Revival of a Play, along with a Best Featured Actor prize for Ferguson.
Below, see new photos of the all-star cast, and then get tickets to see them for yourself this fall. Batter up!
