Oscar nominee John Hawkes and Broadway vet Tracie Thoms will star in the world premiere of Lost Lake by Tony and Pulitzer Prize winner David Auburn. The Manhattan Theatre Club production, under the direction of Tony winner Daniel Sullivan, will begin performances on October 21 at New York City Center—Stage 1. Opening night is set for November 11. The creative team and additional casting will be announced at a later date.
Hawkes received an Oscar nomination for his performance in Winter’s Bone. His additional screen credits include The Sessions, Lincoln, Contagion, Martha Marcy May Marlene and the HBO series Deadwood and Eastbound and Down. Thoms has appeared off-Broadway in The Exonerated and on Broadway in Drowning Crow, Stick Fly and the closing cast of Rent, having previously starred in the film adaptation. Her additional screen credits include Raze, Looper, Safe House, Grindhouse: Death Proof, The Devil Wears Prada and the upcoming remake of Annie.
In Lost Lake, the lakeside rental Veronica (Thoms) has managed to afford is a far cry from the idyllic getaway she and her children so desperately need. And the disheveled property owner, Hogan (Hakwes), has problems of his own—problems that Veronica is inevitably and irrevocably—pulled into.
