Rounding out the cast are understudies Eboni Flowers, Thomas Keegan, Jakeem Dante Powell, and Elizabeth Stahlmann.
The play, (seemingly) set at the MacGregor Plantation, follows three couples as they navigate the complexities of race, history, gender, and sexuality in 21st-Century America.

The Robert O'Hara-helmed production is scheduled to play a limited 17-week run at the 45th Street venue.
