The Broadway premiere run of The Minutes by Tracy Letts has raised $27,000 to support Save the Children's Ukraine Crisis Relief Fund. The production officially opened April 17 at Studio 54 for a limited run through July 24.

The Minutes is donating a portion of tickets sales to support the global humanitarian organization. Save the Children was founded over a century ago, having since grown to help, protect, and care for children worldwide.

Since the beginning of the crisis in Ukraine, the theatre community has come together with fundraisers, benefits, vigils, and more to lend support to the Ukrainian people and organizations addressing the humanitarian crisis.

The Minutes' cast features Letts, Blair BrownJessie MuellerIan Barford, K. Todd FreemanAustin PendletonCliff Chamberlain, Danny McCarthy, Sally Murphy, Jeff Still, and Noah Reid.

Anna D. Shapiro directs the work, which premiered at Steppenwolf Theatre Company in 2017 under her helm. The play takes place in real time at a closed-door city council meeting, peeking at all the hypocrisy, greed, and ambition that go-along with the small-town politics in the fictitious town of Big Cherry.

The production features scenic design by David Zinn, costume design by Ana Kuzmanić, lighting design by Brian MacDevitt, sound design and original music by André Pluess, hair and wig design by Tom Watson, choreography by Ty Defoe, dramaturgy by Edward Sobel, and casting by Caparelliotis Casting.
