The starry cast includes Brian Cox, Jim Gaffigan, Chris Noth, Jason Patric and Kiefer Sutherland. Gregory Mosher, who received a 2010 Tony nomination for his direction of the revival of A View From the Bridge, will direct the play.
According to producers, "On the anniversary of their victory in the Pennsylvania state championship game, four members of the starting lineup of a small-town Catholic high school basketball team gather with their coach to re-live their youthful glory. As the night progresses, the long buried grudges and secrets of the once-confident players surface, threatening not just their solidarity, but the meaning of their victory. With savage humor, That Championship Season probes the darkest aspects of the American dream of success at all costs."
Here is a look at the afternoon meet-and-greet:
