News   PHOTO CALL: Celia Keenan-Bolger Stars in Sarah Ruhl's The Oldest Boy at Lincoln Center
 
Tony Award nominee Celia Keenan-Bolger stars as a mother who discovers her son is a reincarnated high Buddhist teacher in the world premiere of Tony-nominated playwright Sarah Ruhl's The Oldest Boy, which began previews Oct. 9 at the Mitzi E. Newhouse Theater.

Keenan-Bolger (The Glass Menagerie, Peter and the Starcatcher, Spelling Bee) is joined by Ernest Abuba (Pacific Overtures), James Yaegashi (Take Me Out), Tsering Dorjee ("Himalaya"), Takemi Kitamura (Gekiryu), James Saito (Flower Drum Song), Jon Norman Schneider (The Architecture of Becoming) and Nami Yamamoto (Headless Wolf).

According to LCT, "The Oldest Boy tells the story of Tenzin, the toddler son of an American woman (Keenan-Bolger) and a Tibetan man (Yaegashi) who is recognized as the reincarnation of a high Buddhist teacher. Differing cultures contend with competing ideas of faith and love when two monks seek permission to take Tenzin to a monastery in India to begin his training as a spiritual master. His parents must decide whether to send their young son away or keep him home."
