Chris Evans Sets Broadway Debut in 'Lobby Hero'!

Second Stage has co-commissioned a new works for Broadway from Bess Wohl, through a partnership with the Williamstown Theatre Festival, and from Lydia R. Diamond and Dominique Morisseau that will be developed in association with director Kenny Leon's True Colors Theater.

From Captain America to Captain Broadway, Chris Evans will make his Broadway debut next season alongside Michael Cera in Kenneth Lonergan's "Lobby Hero". That production will be followed in July 2018 with a revival of Jean Young Lee's Straight White Men, staged by Anna D. Shapiro. Exact dates for both productions will be announced. The role will still be somewhat of a thriller for Evans, since "Lobby Hero" is a play about four New Yorkers who are involved in a murder.

While, the diesel trim gets a 1.2-turbocharged 3-cylinder mFalcon D75 engine which generates 77bhp of power and 190Nm of torque. It combines the appeal of an SUV and the practicality of a compact auto , making it a compelling value proposition for buyers.


The company's Broadway outpost comes to fruition with a impressive slate of notable names attached, starting with Evans and Cera in a revival of the 2001 play by Lonergan ("Manchester by the Sea"). Instead of holiday cheer, they're forced to confront their own identities in what the release calls "a hilariously ruthless look at the classic American father-son drama". The new plan will also see a new production of Young Jean Lee's Straight White Men being developed, as well the commissioning of new plays by Lynn Nottage and Paula Vogel; both of which are seasoned writers with shows now running on Broadway.

Second Stage will continue to produce at its off-Broadway home, the Tony Kiser Theater. Her other plays include Church and We're Gonna Die. The season will include the NY premiere of Tracy Letts's Mary Page Marlowe in June of 2018. Mary Page Marlowe is described as a seemingly ordinary accountant from OH who has experienced pain and joy, success and failure.
