Roundabout Theatre Company's upcoming off-Broadway premiere of Stephen Karam's Sons of the Prophet, starring Tony winner Joanna Gleason and Broadway vet Santino Fontana, will now begin performances on September 28 instead of the previously announced September 30. The production will officially open on October 20 at the Laura Pels Theatre, directed by Peter Dubois. The limited engagement is scheduled to run through December 23.
In addition to Gleason and Fontana, the cast will include Yusef Bulos, Jonathan Louis Dent, Lizbeth Mackay, Dee Nelson, Chris Perfetti and Charles Socarides.
Sons of the Prophet follows a Lebanese family in Pennsylvania who never lose their sense of humor as they struggle with crazy bosses, medical mysteries and other issues. With unexplained chronic pain and the fate of his reeling family on his shoulders, Joseph Douaihy (Fontana) finds his health, sanity and insurance premium on the line. In an age when modern medicine has a cure for just about everything, Sons of the Prophet takes a look at how we cope with wounds that just won't heal.
