Looking at the fours stars of Manhattan Theatre Club’s New York premiere Long Lost (currently in previews), you may recognize some familiar faces. Donald Margulies’ new play, directed by Daniel Sullivan, tells the story of an estranged brother who mysteriously re-enters his family’s life, and stars Kelly AuCoin, Annie Parisse, Lee Tergesen, and Alex Wolff. Before the play officially opens June 4, here’s a refresher on where you may have seen them before you check out the play:
Kelly AuCoin is best known as “Dollar” Bill Stern in Billions on Showtime. He also played the recurring role of Pastor Tim on FX’s The Americans. He’s also played guest arcs on Untitled Jersey City Project as Ray Harrison, House of Cards as Gary Stamper, and The Blacklist as Benjamin Stalder. But Long Lost is not his first foray on the stage. In 2005, he starred as Octavius in Julius Caesar opposite Denzel Washington and 10 years later, he appeared in Manhattan Theatre Club’s production Of Good Stock.
Fans might know Annie Parisse from binging Netflix—she stars as Sam in the original series Friends From College—or from Person of Interest and Law & Order. Recently, she’s played roles like Ellen Daws on The First, Liz in the limited series The Looming Tower, and Andrea in Vinyl. Years ago, she broke out on As The World Turns. In 2012, she played Betsy/Lindsay in Clybourne Park at Walter Kerr Theatre.
Back in the early naughts, Lee Tergesen broke TV barriers while locked behind bars in Oz as Tobias Beecher. But you may also recognize him as Joe Owens in the TV version of The Purge or Mel Foster in Gone. He played General Tak in the action series Defiance as well as Vince in the Freak Show season of American Horror Story. Off-Broadway, the television star has appeared in shows like Rapture, Blister, Burn and The Foreigner.
Horror film buffs will recognize rising star Alex Wolff from Hereditary, opposite Toni Collette. He’s also appeared in Patriot’s Day and Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle. For those who watch more off-the-beaten-path series, Wolff played Max on In Treatment.
Manhattan Theatre Club’ Long Lost at MTC at New York City Center - Stage I is currently in previews, with opening night set for Tuesday, June 4.
