Adapted by Wouk from his Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, the play concerns Barney Greenwald, an attorney defending a Navy lieutenant who has been brought up on charges of mutiny by his power-hungry commander, Captain Philip Queeg.
Schwimmer, who will make his Broadway debut in the role of Greenwald, is best known for his portrayal of Ross on the long-running TV sitcom Friends. Ivanek, who will play Queeg, is a two-time Tony Award nominee for his work in Two Shakespearean Actors and Brighton Beach Memoirs.
