As previously reported, Daniel Radcliffe, Cherry Jones, and Bobby Cannavale will return to Broadway this fall in Jeremy Kareken, David Murrell, and Gordon Farrell’s new play.

The production will feature scenic design by Tony winner Mimi Lien (Natasha, Pierre and The Great Comet of 1812), costume design by Tony winner Linda Cho (The Gentleman’s Guide To Love and Murder), lighting design by Jen Schriever (Eclipsed), sound design by Palmer Hefferan (Sugar in Our Wounds), and projection design by Lucy Mackinnon (Six Degrees of Separation).

The 16-week limited engagement will begin previews September 20 prior to an official opening October 18 at Studio 54 on Broadway.

The play is based on the essay written about the Las Vegas suicide of teenager Levi Presley. Jim Fingal, assigned to fact check the piece, ignited a seven-year debate on the blurred lines of what passes for truth in literary nonfiction.

The Lifespan of a Fact is produced on Broadway by Jeffrey Richards, Norman and Deanna Twain, Will Trice, Barbara Freitag, Eric Falkenstein, Carl Moellenberg/Wendy Federman, Ken Greiner, Van Kaplan, and Caiola Productions.

Tickets will be on sale to the general public at LifespanofaFact.com beginning June 22 at 10 AM ET.
