THE WHIPPING MAN

BEGINS REHEARSALS TODAY

 

NEW PLAY STARRING ANDRE BRAUGHER, ANDRE HOLLAND, & JAY WILKISON

TO START PREVIEWS THURSDAY, JANUARY 13; OPENING NIGHT TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 1

 

Manhattan Theatre Club’s New York premiere of THE WHIPPING MAN, the acclaimed new play by Matthew Lopez, directed by Tony Award winner Doug Hughes, begins rehearsals today. This new production will star two-time Emmy Award winner Andre Braugher (“Men of a Certain Age,” “Homicide”), Andre Holland (Joe Turner’s Come and Gone, The Brother/Sister Plays), and Jay Wilkison (upcoming film version of Rabbit Hole).

 

The limited engagement of THE WHIPPING MAN will begin previews Thursday, January 13 and open Tuesday, February 1 at MTC at New York City Center – Stage I (131 West 55th Street).

Three men tied by faith, bound by secrets. 

See two-time Emmy® Award winner Andre Braugher (“Men of a Certain Age,” “Homicide”), alongside Andre Holland (Joe Turner’s Come and Gone) and Jay Wilkison (RentRabbit Hole), in the New York debut of Matthew Lopez’s fascinating new play. Tony Award® winner Doug Hughes (The Royal Family, Doubt) returns to MTC to direct this extraordinary tale of loyalty, deceit and deliverance. 

Three men are left at a crossroads—a Jewish Confederate soldier who has returned from battle, and two former slaves, who were raised as Jews in his household. As the three men reunite to celebrate Passover, they uncover a tangle of secrets that might cost each man his freedom.

The creative team for THE WHIPPING MAN includes: John Lee Beatty (scenic design), Catherine Zuber (costume design), Ben Stanton (lighting design), Jill BC DuBoff (sound design), Tom Watson (hair & wig design), and J. David Brimmer (fight direction).
