Culture Project has announced that Broadway favorites Michael McKean and Brooke Shields will join the rotating cast of The Exonerated for a one-week engagement, October 2-7. Written by Jessica Blank and Erik Jensen, The Exonerated is playing through November 4. Bob Balaban directs.
The play is a dramatization of the real-life stories of six individuals who were sentenced to death and later freed amidst overwhelming evidence of their innocence.
The non-rotating company of six includes Jim Bracchitta (Prosecutor 2), Amelia Campbell (Sandra Cook), Bruce Kronenberg (Prosecutor 1), Curtis McClarin (David Keaton), April Yvette Thompson (Georgia Hayes), and JD Williams.
In the next few weeks, rotating cast members Steve Earle, John Forté, K'naan, and Christine Lahti will also take part in the production.
