The live stream run will feature original cast members Meg Gibson (Karin), Lynn Hawley (Hannah), Roberta Maxwell (Patricia), Maryann Plunkett (Mary), Jay O. Sanders (George) and Amy Warren (Joyce).

“We’re honored to partner with The Public Theater to bring back and preserve The Gabriels,’” said Lane and Comley in a press statement. “These plays offer a fantastic opportunity for audiences worldwide to revisit the 2016 presidential election and explore the complexity of human beings as portrayed through the Gabriel family. We’re also excited to offer fans our first mini-series and the opportunity to binge-watch three back-to-back live streams.”
