The Roundabout Theatre Company's production of Apologia opened Off-Broadway October 16. Alexi Kaye Campbell’s play, directed by Daniel Aukin, stars Tony and Emmy Award winner Stockard Channing (A Day in the Death of Joe Egg, It's Only a Play), reprising her role from the acclaimed London run.
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.
Aukin directs a cast completed by 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 John Tillinger (Joe Egg at Roundabout, The Changing Room) as Hugh.
Performances of Apologia are in the Laura Pels Theater in the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre. The production is scheduled to run through December 16. See what critics had to say below. (The list will be updated as reviews are published.)
