'Orphans' will end its run early on May 19.

The Tony-nominated Broadway revival of Orphans, starring Emmy winner and Tony nominee Alec BaldwinBen Foster and Tom Sturridge, will end its run on May 19 at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre. At the time of closing the show will have played 27 preview and 37 regular performances. The production was originally scheduled to run through June 30. 

Penned by Lyle Kessler, Orphans is the story of two orphaned brothers living in a decrepit North Philadelphia row house. Treat (Foster), the eldest, supports his damaged younger sibling by petty thievery, and makes the house a virtual prison for the seemingly simple-minded Phillip (Sturridge). One night Treat kidnaps a rich older man, Harold (Baldwin), who turns out to have his own motives and becomes the father figure for which the boys have always yearned. The show earned two Tony nominations for Best Revival of a Play and Best Performance by a Leading Actor in a Play (Sturrdige).

Directed by Tony winner Daniel Sullivan, Orphans features scenic design John Lee Beatty, costume design by Jess Goldstein, lighting design by Pat Collins, sound design by Peter J. Fitzgerald and music by Tom Kitt.
