Emmy, Golden Globe, and SAG Award winner Sarah Paulson, as previously reported, will make a Broadway return in Branden Jacobs-Jenkins' Appropriate, set to play the Hayes Theater via Second Stage beginning November 28. Opening night is December 18.
The upcoming production will mark Jacobs-Jenkins' Broadway playwriting debut, following a credit in 2022 for contributing additional material to Lincoln Center Theater's revival of Thornton Wilder's The Skin of Our Teeth. Lila Neugebauer is directing.
The work centers on a white family who, while closing out the estate
of their late father, discover some disturbing artifacts that force them
to confront their family's past. The play was previously produced in
2014 Off-Broadway at Signature Theatre.
The performance will be Paulson's first NY stage appearance since Roundabout Theatre Company's 2013 Off-Broadway production of Talley's Folly. Paulson's previous Broadway credits include Collected Stories and The Glass Menagerie.
