Ayad Akhtar's Pulitzer Prize-winning play Disgraced will be the subject of a discussion at New York City’s Drama Book Shop on January 22 at 5pm. Akhtar will be joined by Josh Radnor, who currently costars in the Broadway play. The conversation will be moderated by Aasif Mandvi, who appeared in the LCT3/Lincoln Center Theatre production of the play.
Disgraced will end its Broadway run on March 1 after 27 previews and 149 performances at the Lyceum Theatre. Kimberly Senior directs the drama, which previously played at Lincoln Center Theater's Claire Tow Theater. It opened on Broadway on October 23, 2014. A national tour is set to begin in November.
Hari Dhillon leads the Broadway cast as Amir, as Muslim-American lawyer whose happily married life explodes when a polite conversation over dinner turns into a fiery discourse on race and identity. He is joined by Gretchen Mol as Amir's artist wife, Emily; Josh Radnor as gallery-owner Isaac; Karen Pittman as Isaac's wife, Jory; and Danny Ashok as Amir's nephew, Abe. Dhillon and Ashok reprise performances they originated in a separate production at London's Bush Theatre. Pittman played Jory at Lincoln Center.
