Jay Sullivan will play the role of Lee for the last five weeks of the Broadway run of Jerusalem, at the Music Box Theatre. He replaces John Gallagher Jr., who has a contractual engagement that conflicts with the previously reported extension of the production, which closes on Sunday, August 21.

Jez Butterworth's play, originally seen at London's Royal Court Theatre, focuses on Rooster, a former daredevil motorcyclist and modern-day Pied Piper. As previously reported, the show will return to London's West End, where it will begin performances on October 8 at the Apollo Theatre.

The production, directed by Ian Rickson, stars Mark Rylance as Johnny 'Rooster' Byron, Mackenzie Crook as Ginger, Max Baker as Wesley, Alan David as The Professor, Aimeé-Ffion Edwards as Phaedra, Geraldine Hughes as Dawn, Danny Kirrane as Davey, Charlotte Mills as Tanya, Sarah Moyle as Ms. Fawcett, Molly Ranson as Pea, Harvey Robinson as Mr. Parsons, Barry Sloane as Troy Whitworth and Jay Sullivan as Lee. Aiden Eyrick and Mark Page alternate in the role of Marky.

Sullivan makes his Broadway debut in Jerusalem. His credits include the New York premieres of Dog Sees God (Soho Playhouse), Durango (Public), and Orestes: A Tragic Romp (Folger/Two River). His regional credits include a Helen Hayes-nominated performance in The History Boys.

Jerusalem is designed by Ultz, with lighting design by Mimi Jordan Sherin and sound design by Ian Dickinson for Autograph. The composer is Stephen Warbeck.
