Santino Fontana, Joanna Gleason, Lizbeth Mackay and More Cast in Roundabout's Sons of the Prophet

News   Santino Fontana, Joanna Gleason, Lizbeth Mackay and More Cast in Roundabout's Sons of the Prophet Roundabout Theatre Company has announced the complete cast for its upcoming New York premiere of Stephen Karam's Sons of the Prophet, which is scheduled to begin previews Sept. 30 with an official opening Oct. 20 at the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre/Laura Pels Theatre.

Directed by Peter DuBois, the cast will feature Yusef Bulos (Bill), Jonathan Louis Dent (Vin), Santino Fontana (Joseph), Joanna Gleason (Gloria), Lizbeth Mackay (Mrs. McAndrew), Dee Nelson (Dr. Manor), Chris Perfetti (Charles) and Charles Socarides (Timothy).

"If to live is to suffer, then Joseph Douaihy (Fontana) is more alive than most," according to press notes. "With unexplained chronic pain and the fate of his reeling family on his shoulders, Joseph’s health, sanity, and insurance premium are on the line. In an age when modern medicine has a cure for just about everything, Sons of the Prophet is a refreshingly honest take on how we cope with wounds that just won't heal, and the funniest play about human suffering you’re likely to see."

Karam’s play Sons of the Prophet was commissioned by Roundabout Theatre Company, following his hugely acclaimed New York debut as the author of Speech & Debate in 2007 at Roundabout Underground. 

The design team includes Anna Louizos (sets), Bobby Frederick Tilley, II (costumes), Japhy Weideman (lights) and M.L. Dogg (sound).

Performances will continue through Dec. 23.

The Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre/Laura Pels Theatre is located at 111 West 46th Street. Tickets are available by calling Roundabout Ticket Services at (212) 719-1300, online at www.roundabouttheatre.org or at the Laura Pels box office. Ticket prices range from $71-$81.
