The stars of If I Forget, the new play by Dear Evan Hansen scribe Steven Levenson, met the press at their rehearsal studio on January 12. Directed by Daniel Sullivan, the Roundabout Theatre Company will run February 2-April 30 at the Laura Pels Theatre, with opening night set for February 22.
If I Forget is described as follows: "In the final months before 9/11, liberal Jewish studies professor Michael Fischer has reunited with his two sisters to celebrate their father's 75th birthday. Each deeply invested in their own version of family history, the siblings clash over everything from Michael’s controversial scholarly work to the mounting pressures of caring for an ailing parent. As destructive secrets and long-held resentments bubble to the surface, the three negotiate — with biting humor and razor-sharp insight — how much of the past they’re willing to sacrifice for a chance at a new beginning."
The full company is made up of Larry Bryggman (Picnic), Maria Dizzia (Orange Is the New Black), Tasha Lawrence (Good People), Jeremy Shamos (Noises Off), Seth Steinberg, Kate Walsh (Grey’s Anatomy), and Gary Wilmes (Irrational Man).
The creative team includes Derek McLane (set design), Jess Goldstein (costume design), and Kenneth Posner (lighting design).
