J.T. Rogers’ Oslo, winner of the 2017 Tony Award for Best Play, concludes its Broadway engagement at the Vivian Beaumont Theater July 16. The acclaimed and extended Lincoln Center Theater production, directed by Bartlett Sher, played 116 performances.

Rogers’ political drama began previews on Broadway March 23 ahead of an April 13 opening. The play details the secret peace talks that took place between Israel and the PLO in Norway in 1993, with a cast led by Jennifer Ehle and Jefferson Mays as the couple that orchestrated the covert meetings. Both actors were nominated for Tony Awards for their performances.

Michael Aronov, who plays Israeli diplomat Uri Savir in the production, took home the Tony for Best Performance by an Actor in Featured Role a Play. The show was nominated for seven Tony Awards, winning two.

Oslo also won the NY Drama Critics' Circle, Drama Desk, Outer Critics Circle, Drama League, Lucille Lortel, and Obie Awards for Best Play.

Rounding out the cast of Oslo are Anthony Azizi, Adam Dannheisser, Daniel Jenkins, Dariush Kashani, Jeb Kreager, Christopher McHale, Daniel Oreskes, Angela Pierce, Henny Russell, Jeff Still, and T. Ryder Smith.

The acclaimed drama will open at London's National in September before transferring to the Harold Pinter the following month.
