The upcoming Roundabout Theatre Company production of Alexi Kaye Campbell’s Apologia, directed by Daniel Aukin, has found its complete cast. As previously announced, Tony and Emmy Award winner Stockard Channing will reprise her role from the London production.
Joining Channing in the Off-Broadway premiere will be Hugh Dancy (Hannibal, Journey's End) as Peter and Simon, Megalyn Echikunwoke (Night School, Step Sisters) as Claire, Talene Monahon (Log Cabin, Bobbie Clearly) as Trudi, and actor and director John Tillinger (Joe Egg at Roundabout, The Changing Room) as Hugh.
Following an acclaimed London run, Apologia will begin performances September 27 in the Laura Pels Theater in the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre. Opening night will be October 16 for a limited engagement through December 16.
In Apologia, a woman faces the repercussions of her past. In the 1960s, she was a radical activist and political protester. Now a celebrated art historian, the publication of her memoir threatens to split her family apart.
The creative team for Apologia at Roundabout will be made up of Dane Laffrey (scenic design), Anita Yavich (costume design), Bradley King (lighting design), Ryan Rumery (original compositions and sound design), and Ben Furey (dialect coach).
The West End production of Apologia was helmed by Jamie Lloyd at Trafalgar Studios last fall.
Channing, who won a Tony Award for her performance in A Day in the Death of Joe Egg in 1985, was last seen on Broadway in 2014 in It’s Only a Play. She was also Tony-nominated for her roles in Other Desert Cities (2012), Pal Joey (2009), The Lion in Winter (1999), Four Baboons Adoring the Sun (1992), Six Degrees of Separation (1991), and The House of Blue Leaves (1986).
Tickets for Apologia are available by calling (212) 719-1300, online at RoundaboutTheatre.org, or in person at any Roundabout box office.
