How I Met Your Mother's Josh Radnor Announced in Broadway Company of Disgraced
Ayad Akhtar's Pulitzer Prize-winning play prepares for a Broadway run.
Disgraced, which earned playwright Ayad Akhtar the 2013 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, is headed to Broadway's Lyceum Theatre this fall. Preview performances will begin September 27 in advance of an October 23 opening.
Disgraced follows a successful Pakistani-American lawyer who is rapidly moving up the corporate ladder while distancing himself from his cultural roots. The cast will feature How I Met Your Mother star and Broadway alum Josh Radnor (The Graduate); Hari Dhillon, who starred as Amir in the play's London production; Karen Pittman (Good People), who performed in the play's LCT3/Lincoln Center Theater production in 2012; and Gretchen Mol (The Shape of Things). Kimberly Senior, who directed the play in Chicago and at Lincoln Center, will return to Disgraced to helm its Broadway mounting.
The design team includes set design by John Lee Beatty, costume design by Jennifer Von Mayrhauser, lighting design by Ken Posner, and sound design by Jill DuBoff. The production is produced by The Araca Group and Lincoln Center Theater.
