With Doubt, playwright John Patrick Shanley makes his Broadway debut after a long regional and Off-Broadway career (Danny and the Deep Blue Sea, Italian American Reconciliation, Four Dogs and a Bone). Shanley, Hughes and the entire four-actor company were nominated for 2005 Tony Awards for their work. The play won the 2005 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the 2005 Drama Critics Circle Award for Best Play.
"Set against the backdrop of a Bronx Catholic school in 1964, Doubt is the story of a strong-minded woman faced with a difficult decision," according to the producers. "Should she voice concerns about one of her male colleagues…even if she's not entirely certain of the truth?"
The Broadway production stars Cherry Jones as Sister Aloysius and Brían F. O’Byrne as Father Flynn, with Heather Goldenhersh as Sister James and Adriane Lenox as Mrs. Muller. The play began at Off-Broadway's Manhattan Theatre Club in fall 2004 and moved to Broadway in 2005.
Doubt is produced by Carole Shorenstein Hays, MTC Productions Inc. (Lynne Meadow, artistic director; Barry Grove, executive producer), Roger Berlind and Scott Rudin. Performance schedule is Tuesday through Saturday at 8 PM, with matinees on Wednesday and Saturday at 2 PM, and Sunday at 3 PM.
