The company of Broadway's The Lifespan of a Fact met the press at their rehearsal studio on Thursday, September 6.
Written by Jeremy Karekan, David Murrell, and Gordon Farrell, and directed by Leigh Silverman, the production stars Daniel Radcliffe, Cherry Jones, and Bobby Cannavale. It will play a limited 16-week engagement at Studio 54 beginning Thursday, September 20, with opening night set for Thursday, October 18.
Based on the book by John D'Agata and Jim Fingal, The Lifespan of a Fact is described as follows: "The determined young fact checker (Daniel Radcliffe) is about to stir up trouble. The demanding editor (Cherry Jones) has given him a big assignment: apply his skill to a groundbreaking piece by the unorthodox author (Bobby Cannavale). Together, they take on the high-stakes world of publishing in this new comedy of conflict. The ultimate showdown between fact and fiction is about to begin – with undeniably delicious consequences."
The production will feature scenic design by Mimi Lien, costume design by Linda Cho, lighting design by Jen Schriever, sound design by Palmer Hefferan, and projection design by Lucy Mackinnon.
