Trip Cullman directs a cast made up of Captain America star Chris Evans, Atlanta's Brian Tyree Henry, This Is Our Youth's Michael Cera, and Arcadia actor Bel Powley.

Lonergan’s Lobby Hero premiered Off-Broadway at Playwrights Horizons in 2001. The play tells the story of four New Yorkers involved in a murder investigation in the lobby of a Manhattan apartment complex: a 27-year-old security guard, his stern boss, a young police officer, and her unpredictable partner.

The Broadway production of Lobby Hero features scenic design by David Rockwell, costume design by Paloma Young, lighting design by Japhy Weideman, sound design by Darron L West, and casting by Telsey + Company.


Under the artistic direction of Carole Rothman, 2ST’s Hayes Theater is the only Broadway theatre exclusively dedicated to living American playwrights and new plays. Lonergran’s Lobby Hero will be followed by a new version of Young Jean Lee’s Straight White Men slated for the summer. The play received a hit Off-Broadway run in 2014; its Broadway production will mark the first play on Broadway by an Asian-American woman.
