John Turturro and Alvin Epstein will star in Samuel Beckett's Endgame, to play BAM's Harvey Theater, April 25-May 18. The production, which will open officially on April 30, will be directed by Andrei Belgrader. Additional casting will be announced at a later date.

The one-act play, originally published in 1957, is considered to be one of Beckett's most important works. BAM will present Deborah Warner's production of Beckett's Happy Days, starring Fiona Shaw, for a four-week run beginning on January 8.

Turturro, who will play Hamm, has starred on Broadway in Life x 3 and appeared Off-Broadway in Danny and the Deep Blue Sea, Italian American Reconciliation, The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui, and Souls of Naples. He can currently be seen on the big screen in Margot at the Wedding.

Epstein, who will play Nagg, starred in the original New York production of Beckett's Waiting for Godot, and has played the roles of Clov, Hamm, and Nagg in three prior Off-Broadway productions of Endgame. His many other stage credits include King Lear, The Cherry Orchard, Howard Katz, and Tuesdays with Morrie.
