Brooklyn Academy of Music's revival of Lorraine Hansberry's seldom-staged The Sign in Sidney Brustein's Window, starring Golden Globe winners Oscar Isaac and Rachel Brosnahan, is Broadway bound, a last-minute addition to the 2022-2023 Broadway season that will begin performances April 25 and open April 27 at the James Earl Jones Theatre. The production has announced a number of ticket initiatives that will make low-priced tickets available to theatregoers at all performances.

“As we all know, there still exist too many barriers of entry to people accessing the best theatre in the world," says producer Jeremy O. Harris in a statement. "In our mind outside of geography, those barriers within our control must be eroded so that everyone can see themselves on our stages. This was at the core of Lorraine’s practice and is at the core of mine. This initiative is an exciting way to not only erode a major barrier, price, but also to inspire in a new generation the sense that going to the theatre to see human dramas play out can be a thrilling event."

The production kicks off its ticket initiatives by offering the first two rows of seats for $40 per ticket for the first two weeks of the production's run, through May 9. Those tickets will be available exclusively in-person at the James Earl Jones Theatre box office beginning April 25 at noon ET. Beginning April 28, a digital lottery will make $35 tickets available via entry at, limited to two tickets per person. A digital rush ticket program will also offer $35 tickets via Also restricted to two tickets per person and launching April 28, rush tickets will be available only on the day of the performance. An in-person rush program will see $47 same-day tickets available at the Jones box office.

Isaac (Hamlet, Moon Knight, Scenes from a Marriage) and Brosnahan (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, The Big Knife, Othello) reprise their performances from the BAM run as Sidney and Iris Brustein, a couple living in 1960s Greenwich Village, surrounded by a progressive circle of friends. Hansberry paints a portrait of their marriage, their sometimes unrealistic ideals, and the complexities of bohemian intellectualism and activism.

Obie and Lortel winner Anne Kauffman (The Thugs, Mary Jane) continues as director of the Broadway bow.
