You Will Get Sick (Off-Broadway, Roundabout Theatre Company - Laura Pels Theatre, 2022) | Playbill

You Will Get Sick


You will meet a young man holding onto a secret and the stranger he pays to listen. You will laugh, marvel, and transform from the relationship that grows between them, and from this stunningly human new play.

Tony Award winner Linda Lavin and Billions star Daniel K. Isaac lead the cast of playwright Noah Diaz’s triumphant and joyous NYC debut, directed by Tony nominee Sam Pinkleton.

Note: On Wednesday evenings, you will see the remarkable Becca Lish (Blacklist) in Ms. Lavin’s role.


In Noah Diaz’s You Will Get Sick, a young man is shocked to receive a life-changing diagnosis. Overwhelmed, he turns to a stranger for help, hiring an older woman to break the news to his family and friends – thus setting into motion a series of events that will profoundly reshape both of their lives.
