Emmy nominee Elle Fanning (The Great) will make her Broadway debut later this season in Branden Jacobs-Jenkins' Appropriate, set to play the Hayes Theater via Second Stage beginning November 28. Opening night is December 18.
Fanning will join the previously announced company of Emmy, Golden Globe, and SAG Award winner Sarah Paulson, Corey Stoll (House of Cards, Billions), Natalie Gold (Succession), and Alyssa Emily Marvin (Grey House). Additional casting will be announced.
The upcoming production will mark Jacobs-Jenkins' Broadway playwriting debut, following a credit in 2022 for contributing additional material to Lincoln Center Theater's revival of Thornton Wilder's The Skin of Our Teeth. Lila Neugebauer is directing.
The work centers on a white family who, while closing out the estate of their late father, discover some disturbing artifacts that force them to confront their family's past. The play was previously produced in 2014 Off-Broadway at Signature Theatre.
