Scott Rudin (Betrayal, A Raisin in the Sun, Death of a Salesman) is producing the production that marks Lonergan's Broadway playwriting debut. Performances are scheduled through Jan. 4, 2015.

This Is Our Youth, which centers on three aimless New York City teens, was first produced Off-Broadway in 1996 by the New Group.

"Arrested Development" and "Juno" star Cera is joined by Culkin ("Igby Goes Down") and Gevinson ("Enough Said"). Cera and Culkin previously co-starred in a 2012 Australian production of This Is Our Youth, which was staged by Mark Brokaw, who also directed the Off-Broadway premiere.

Lonergan is an Academy Award nominee for "You Can Count On Me," which he wrote and directed. His plays include The Starry Messenger, Lobby Hero and The Waverly Gallery.

The production has scenic design by Todd Rosenthal, costume design by Ann Roth, lighting design by Brian MacDevitt and sound design by Rob Milburn and Michael Bodeen. Original music has been composed by Vampire Weekend Grammy Award winner Rostam Batmanglij.
