A Compassionate Look at Straight White Men

Young Jean Lee's new play makes its Broadway debut with Second Stage Theater.

Young Jean Lee is set to make history as the first Asian-American female playwright to be produced on Broadway, with her play Straight White Men beginning previews at Second Stage's Helen Hayes Theater on June 29 in advance of a July 23 opening. Directed by Anna D. Shapiro, the cast features Armie Hammer, Josh Charles, Paul Schneider, Kate Bornstein, Ty Defoe, and Tom Skerritt. The play's title conjures a vivid and specific image of what's in store, but hear the ensemble speak about some of the show's less expected elements.
