Liev Schreiber and Amy Ryan in Doubt: A Parable Joan Marcus

The Roundabout Theatre Company revival of John Patrick Shanley's Doubt: A Parable officially opens at the newly-renamed Todd Haimes Theatre March 7 after beginning previews February 3. The extended limited engagement will continue through April 21.

Set in an all-boys Catholic school in the Bronx, the drama ensues when the strict Sister Aloysius begins to suspect an inappropriate relationship between Father Flynn and a student. The cast features Amy Ryan as Sister Aloysius (stepping in for the initially announced Tyne Daly, who departed the production following an unexpected illness), Tony winner Liev Scheiber as Father Flynn, Zoe Kazan as Sister James, and Quincy Tyler Bernstine as Mrs. Muller. Rounding out the company are understudies Christiana Clark, Olivia Cygan, Isabel Keating, and Chris McGarry. Casting is by Jim Carnahan and Carrie Gardner.

Roundabout Interim Artistic Director Scott Ellis helms the revival, the play's first on Broadway. 

Doubt: A Parable opened at the Walter Kerr Theatre March 31, 2005, and ran for over a year. It was nominated for eight Tony Awards, winning four, including Best Play; Best Actress for Cherry Jones; Best Featured Actress for Adriane Lenox, who played the mother of the student; and Best Direction for Doug Hughes. Shanley was also awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. The work received a film adaptation in 2008 starring Meryl Streep, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Amy Adams, and Viola Davis, all receiving Academy Award nominations for their performances.

Ellis leads a creative team that includes scenic designer David Rockwell, lighting designer Kenneth Posner, costume designer Linda Cho, sound designer Mikaal Sulaiman, hair and wig designer Charles G. LaPointe, and vocal coach Kate Wilson. Charles Means serves as the production stage manager. 

In addition to Doubt, Roundabout's season also includes Jonah, currently running Off-Broadway, and Home, which begins at the Todd Haimes Theatre May 17.
