Lily Rabe and Hamish Linklater have signed on to join previously announced star Alan Rickman in Theresa Rebeck's Seminar this fall at Broadway's Golden Theatre. Performances will begin on October 27 with opening night set for November 20. Sam Gold directs.
Seminar follows four young writers participating in a private seminar taught by literary icon Leonard (Rickman). Tensions arise during the seminar when Leonard deems certain students more promising than others. Rabe and Linklater will play two of the aspiring novelists taking part in the class.
Rabe earned a Tony nomination for The Merchant of Venice last season. She has also appeared on Broadway in The American Plan, Heartbreak House and Steel Magnolias. Her off-Broadway credits include Crimes of the Heart and Colder Than Here. Linklater also appeared in the The Merchant of Venice as well as the Shakespeare in the Park's The Winter's Tale and Twelfth Night. His off-Broadway credits include The School For Lies, The Busy World is Hushed, Recent Tragic Events and Good Thing.
Seminar will feature set and costume design by David Zinn, lighting design by Ben Stanton and original music and sound design by John Gromada. Further casting will be announced at a later date.
