Amy Ryan is a twice Tony-nominated actress, first for her role in a 2000 production of Uncle Vanya and again in 2005 for her performance in A Streetcar Named Desire opposite John C. Reilly. Other Broadway credits include The Sisters Rosensweig, The Women and The Three Sisters.

Paul Giamatti's Broadway credits include The Iceman Cometh, Arcadia, Racing Demon and The Three Sisters.
