The Lincoln Center Theater production of Joshua Harmon’s Admissions begins previews February 15 in the Mitzi E. Newhouse Theater. Daniel Aukin directs a cast made up of Ben Edelman, Andrew Garman, Jessica Hecht, Ann McDonough, and Sally Murphy.
The production will officially open March 12.
In Admissions, Hecht and Garman play a couple working at the helm of an exclusive school—one as the head of the admissions department, the other as Headmaster. When their only son, played by Edelman, sets his sights on an Ivy League university, their own progressive values begin to clash with his personal ambitions.
As previously announced, McDonough replaced Dana Ivey, who had to leave the show due to a surgery.
Admissions features sets by Riccardo Hernandez, costumes by Toni-Leslie James, lighting by Mark Barton, and sound by Ryan Rumery.
Harmon’s plays include Significant Other, which transferred to Broadway, Bad Jews, and Skintight, which will premiere at Roundabout Theatre Company starring Idina Menzel. Admissions is the recipient of an Edgerton Foundation New Play Award.
