Watch Scenes From the World Premiere of Steven Levenson's Drama If I Forget
Roundabout Theatre Company presents a new play from the cocreator of ''Dear Evan Hansen''.
The world premiere off-Broadway production of If I Forget by Steven Levenson (Dear Evan Hansen), which is currently in performance at Roundabout Theatre Company's Laura Pels Theatre, has released video footage. Directed by Tony Award winner Daniel Sullivan (Proof), the new play officially opens February 22 for a limited engagement through April 30.
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. If I Forget tells a powerful tale of a family and a culture at odds with itself."
The show's company includes 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).
