Starring will be Aya Cash (The Boys, Kings), Brian D. Coats (Jitney), Maureen Sebastian (Lonely I'm Not), Constance Shulman (Orange is the New Black), and Tony winner Frank Wood (The Great Society).
The show, which follows a father-daughter road trip that turns out to be much more than what's on the surface, was originally announced for the 2019-20 season.
Aukin's creative team will include scenic designer Lael Jellinek, costume designer Anita Yavich, lighting designer Matt Frey, and sound designer Kate Marvin. Casting is by Kelly Gillespie, and lark hackshaw will serve as production stage manager.
MTC is currently presenting The Collaboration at Broadway's Samuel J. Friedman Theatre through January 29. The Off-Broadway season will continue with Rajiv Joseph's King James, centered on the legacy of LeBron James and two men who idolize him. Directed by Kenny Leon, the work will start May 2.
