The Lincoln Center Theater Broadway production of Oslo officially opens April 13 at the Vivian Beaumont Theater. J.T. Rogers’ political drama, which details the secret peace talks that took place between Israel and the PLO in Norway in 1993, arrives on Broadway following an acclaimed earlier engagement at LCT’s Mitzi E. Newhouse Theater Off-Broadway.

The show began previews March 23.

The Broadway production reunites the entire original New York cast, including two-time Tony winner Jennifer Ehle and Tony winner Jefferson Mays as the couple that orchestrated the covert meetings. Tony winner Bartlett Sher directs a cast that also includes Michael Aronov, Anthony Azizi, Adam Dannheisser, Daniel Jenkins, Dariush Kashani, Jeb Kreager, Christopher McHale, Daniel Oreskes, Angela Pierce, Henny Russell, Joseph Siravo, and T. Ryder Smith.
