The Park Avenue Armory will present the American premiere of Robert Icke's new play The Doctor, starring Olivier winner Juliet Stevenson. Performances will commence on June 3 and will continue through August 6, 2023.

Originally produced at the Almeida Theatre and currently running on the West End, The Doctor, which Icke also directs, is adapted from Arthur Schnitzler's Professor Bernhardi. It has sets and costumes by Hildegard Bechtler, lighting by Natasha Chivers, and music and sound by Tom Gibbons.

Earlier in the year, the Armory will produce the American premiere of Alexander Zeldin's Love (February 25-March 25). The drama, which received acclaim during its run at the National Theatre in 2016, is directed by the playwright, with designs by Natasha Jenkins, lighting by Marc Williams, sound by Josh Anio Grigg, and movement by Marcin Rudy.

Complete information about both productions is still to be announced.
