Tickets for Doubt on Broadway Available NowThe lines between fact and fiction, and the niggling feeling of uncertainty come alive in Roundabout Theatre Company’s staggering staging of Pulitzer Prize-winning play Doubt at American Airlines Theatre. Liev Schreiber and Tyne Daly star in director Scott Ellis’ revival of this modern classic, which sees a nun and a charismatic priest clash as she fears he is committing unspeakable sins at a Catholic boarding school.
What is Doubt: A Parable about?In an all-boys Catholic school in the Bronx, principal Sister Aloysius is a domineering presence who is feared by students and colleagues. But she also has her eye on a troubling situation: the charming priest Father Flynn seems to be getting too close to one of the students. Sister Aloysius must confront fact, fiction and her own doubts about what she is seeing, as she considers how much she will risk to get to the truth and expose what is really happening behind closed doors.
Doubt: A Parable is a searing and confronting modern drama that asks uncomfortable questions, but is undeniably an incredible study of moral uncertainty.
Tyne Daly and Liev Schreiber in Doubt on BroadwayTony Award winners Tyne Daly and Liev Schreiber star in Doubt as Sister Aloysius and the charismatic but troublesome Father Flynn. These theatrical heavyweights make this an even more unmissable revival; between them, they have Tony, Golden Globe, Drama Desk and Emmy Award nominations and wins, and are two of the most prolific, magnetic stage actors currently working.
Tyne Daly is best known for playing Mary Beth Lacey in Cagney & Lacey, and her stage credits include Gypsy (for which she won the Best Actress in a Musical Tony Award) and Mothers and Sons.
Liev Schreiber won the 2005 Best Featured Actor in a Play Tony Award for Glengarry Glen Ross, and has also appeared in Emmy and Golden Globe-nominated series Ray Donovan.
John Patrick Stanley’s Pulitzer Prize Winner ReturnsThis “inspired” (The New York Times) modern classic by John Patrick Shanley was last seen on Broadway almost two decades ago, starring Cherry Jones as Sister Aloysius. It was a huge success the first time around, and during its run at the Walter Kerr Theatre in 2005, it was nominated for seven Tony Awards - winning Best Play - and won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama.
Shanley’s story became even more popular following the 2008 movie adaptation, which starred Meryl Streep, Viola Davis, Philip Seymour Hoffman and Amy Adams. All four actors were nominated for Academy Awards for their work, and it is a gripping, affecting story that is even more powerful on stage.
