The Americans Emmy nominee Keri Russell will join Adam Driver in Michael Mayer's upcoming Broadway revival of Lanford Wilson's Burn This.

The March 2019 production, with dates, theater, and additional casting to be announced, will star the previously announced Driver as Pale, with Russell taking on the role of Anna. The drama tells the story of four New Yorkers in the 1980s whose lives are uprooted by a young dancer's accidental death.

Russell made her New York stage debut in Neil LaBute's Fat Pig in 2005. She is best known for her performances on The Americans, for which she's currently an Emmy nominee, and her Golden Globe-winning turn on Felicity. Driver's stage credits include Man and Boy, Mrs. Warren's Profession, Look Back in Anger, and Angels in America. They will both be seen in the upcoming Star Wars: Episode IX, set for release on December 20, 2019.
