Complete casting has been revealed for The Public's upcoming world premiere of Itamar Moses' The Ally, performing at the Off-Broadway company's Anspacher Theater beginning February 15, 2024, and continuing through March 10. Opening night is February 27, with Lila Neugebauer at the helm.

Joining the previously announced Josh Radnor in the cast will be Cherise Boothe as Nakia and Rabbi, Elijah Jones as Baron, Michael Khalid Karadsheh as Farid, Joy Osmanski as Gwen, Ben Rosenfield as Reuven, and Madeline Weinstein as Rachel.

The new work follows Asaf (Radnor), who's thrown into conflict as a liberal, husband, academic, American, atheist, and Jewish person asked to sign a social justice manifesto.

"I feel so extraordinarily lucky to be working with Lila, The Public, and this incredibly gifted group of actors on my play,” says Moses in a statement. "I began working on this script years ago to wrestle with a set of questions that felt very personal to me and to which I did not have any clear answers. I still don't, but I couldn't ask for a braver and more talented group to delve into the uncertainty with."

The production will feature scenic design by Lael Jellinek, costume design by Sarita Fellows, lighting design by Reza Behjat, sound design by Bray Poor, and prop management by Claire M. Kavanah. Roxana Khan serves as production stage manager.
