Corey Hawkins also stars in Trip Cullman's upcoming Broadway revival of John Guare's drama.

A young man infiltrates the lives of a wealthy couple when he claims to be the son of the legendary actor Sidney Poitier. Thus begins John Guare's drama Six Degrees of Separation. With a cast headed by Allison Janney, John Benjamin Hickey, and Corey Hawkins, the play returns to Broadway this spring in a new production under the direction of Trip Cullman. At a recent press event, Cullman, Guare, and the cast discussed the work and its depiction of a type of deception we now know as "catfishing."
