The Wire's Andre Royo will star in an off-Broadway revival of Eric Bogosian's Drinking in America, directed by Mark Armstrong. The play will be staged at Audible's Minetta Lane Theatre beginning March 10 for a four-week engagement, with the production recorded and released as an audio edition at a later date.

The critically acclaimed work deals with toxic masculinity and male fragility as it challenges society's ideal of what exactly makes a man, and just how easily it can be to break that same man down.

Drinking in America's creative team includes Kristen Robinson (scenic design), Sarita Fellows (costume design), Jeff Croiter (lighting design), John Gromada (sound design), Kate Wilson (dialect and vocal coach), and Bess Marie Glorioso (production stage manager).
