Katie Holmes stars in the New York premiere of The Wanderers, written by Anna Ziegler and directed by Barry Edelstein, at Roundabout Theatre Company's Laura Pels Theatre. Get The Wanderers tickets on New York Theatre Guide. The Wanderers is a play about two couples: Orthodox Jewish newlwyeds Schmuli and Esther, and secular Jew Abe and a movie star (Holmes). The newlyweds' future is all spelled out for them; their marriage is arranged, and they don't know each other well. Abe's future is in his own hands — or so he thinks. When the movie star emails Abe unexpectedly, she puts that belief, and both their marriages, to the test. Both couples wrestle with the question of whether they can be happy with what they have, or if they'll always be looking for something more. The premiere of The Wanderers off Broadway was initially scheduled for 2020; its world premiere was at The Old Globe in San Diego. Playwright Ziegler has had three other shows off Broadway since 2015: A Delicate Ship, The Last Match (which also played the Laura Pels Theatre), and Actually. Across the pond, Nicole Kidman won an Evening Standard Award for her performance in Ziegler's play Photograph 51, about scientist Rosalind Franklin's role in discovering DNA. Director Barry Edelstein has more than 20 Off-Broadway directing credits, which include multiple works at The Public Theater and Classic Stage Company. One of these was Race, a play he also adapted, in 2001. The Wanderers marks his first major Off-Broadway production in more than 10 years; his last was The Twenty-Seventh Man at the Public.
