New in 2019 Keri Russell and Adam Driver star in a revival of Lanford Wilson's explosive drama that follows the troubled relationship of a restaurant owner and a dancer in the wake of a shared tragedy.
From the producers: When a mysterious death brings together two unlikely strangers, their explosive connection sparks a chemistry too fiery to ignore. Directed by Tony winner Michael Mayer, "Burn This" is a smoldering story of love and raw attraction by one of the most vital playwrights of the modern era.
Author Lanford Wilson's works include "Balm in Gilead," "The Hot l Baltimore," "Fifth of July," and "Talley's Folly," for which he received the 1980 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. Wilson was nominated for three Tony Awards and has won a Drama Desk Award and five Obie Awards. The original production of "Burn This" premiered Off-Broadway in 1987 starring John Malkovich and Joan Allen. The play transferred to Broadway that same year for a critically acclaimed run at the Plymouth Theatre, earning Allen a Tony Award for her performance.
"Burn This" stars three-time Emmy Award nominee Adam Driver ("Star Wars," "BlacKkKlansman," HBO's “Girls”) and Golden Globe winner Keri Russell ("The Americans," "Waitress," "Felicity"). Completing the cast are Tony Award nominees David Furr ("Noises Off") and Brandon Uranowitz ("Falsettos"). Tony winner Michael Mayer ("Spring Awakening," "Hedwig and the Angry Inch") directs.
