Performances began October 5 for the Broadway premiere of Junk, a new play by Pulitzer Prize winner Ayad Akhtar (Disgraced) produced by Lincoln Center Theater. Inspired by the real junk bond kings of the day, the story is set in the high-flying, risk-seeking financial world of the 1980s.
Junk, directed by Doug Hughes, will officially open November 2 in The Vivian Beaumont Theater.

First Look at Steven Pasquale in Junk on Broadway
Steven Pasquale plays Robert Merkin, an investment banker who has just landed the cover of Time Magazine in 1985. Hailed for his philosophy that “debt is an asset,“ Merkin is attempting to re-shape the market, the rules, and the world through a new perspective and an attempt to take over an iconic American company.
