J.T. Rogers' drama is directed by Bartlett Sher.
Lincoln Center Theater's production of J.T. Rogers' new play Oslo celebrated its opening night on July 11.
Directed by Tony winner Bartlett Sher (Fiddler on the Roof), the cast includes Michael Aronov (Golden Boy), Adam Dannheisser (Fiddler on the Roof), two-time Tony winner Jennifer Ehle (The Coast of Utopia), Tony nominee Daniel Jenkins (Golden Boy), Dariush Kashani (The Invisible Hand), Tony winner Jefferson Mays (A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder), Daniel Oreskes (The Miracle Worker), Henny Russell (The Audience), Joseph Siravo (The Light in the Piazza), and T. Ryder Smith (War Horse).
Described as a darkly comic epic, Oslo tells the story of how Norwegian diplomat Mona Juul and her husband, social scientist Terje Rød-Larsen, planned and orchestrated top-secret, high-level meetings between the State of Israel and the Palestine Liberation Organization, which culminated in the signing of the historic 1993 Oslo Accords.
The production has sets by Michael Yeargan, costumes by Catherine Zuber, lighting by Donald Holder, and sound by Peter John Still.
