Charlie Cox (Daredevil) and Heather Lind (Of Good Stock) have been announced to join the cast of Manhattan Theatre Club’s American premiere of Incognito by Nick Payne (Constellations). Tony Award winner Doug Hughes will direct the production, which is set to begin previews May 3 in advance of a May 24 opening night at MTC at New York City Center – Stage I.
In Incognito, "a pathologist steals the brain of Albert Einstein; a neuropsychologist embarks on her first romance with another woman; a seizure patient forgets everything but how much he loves his girlfriend." The play asks whether memory and identity are nothing but illusions.
The show's creative team will feature Scott Pask (scenic design), Catherine Zuber (costume design), Ben Stanton (lighting design), David Van Tieghem (original music & sound design), and J. David Brimmer (fight director).
Additional casting for Incognito will be announced in the coming weeks.
