Ethan Hawke, Paul Dano returning to Broadway in Sam Shepard's True West

Ethan Hawke, Paul Dano returning to Broadway in Sam Shepard's True West”

Ethan Hawke and Paul Dano will square off in a new Broadway production of Sam Shepard's True West, the Roundabout Theatre Company announced today.

They'll be directed by James Macdonald, whose acclaimed production of Lucy Kirkwood's The Children recently closed off-Broadway.

First produced in 1980, the Pulitzer Prize-shortlisted play unfolds against a mythic American landscape suspended between the desert frontier and the seductive dream factory of Hollywood.

In True West, two brothers-one, a moderately successful screenwriter (Dano), the other, a drifter (Hawke)-reunite to discuss their mother's recently abandoned house, leading to the airing of old resentments and some unexpected twists in the relationship. A 1982 Steppenwolf Theatre Company staging helped put John Malkovich and Gary Sinise on the acting map. True West made its NY premiere in a 1980 off-Broadway production starring Tommy Lee Jones as Austin and Peter Boyle as Lee.

Hawke's work with Shepard includes directing the playwright's A Lie of the Mind off-Broadway in 2010. The pair acted alongside each other in the film "Taking Lives" and Mr. Hawke also directed Mr. Dano on stage in a production of Things We Want.

Dano made his Broadway debut at age 10 in the 1995 revival of A Month in the Country starring Helen Mirren. Hawke's Broadway credits include roles in revivals of The Seagull, Henry IV, and Macbeth, and he was nominated for a Tony Award in 2007 for his performance in Tom Stoppard's The Coast of Utopia.

Additional casting and creative team information will be announced at a later date. The production joins a previously announced revival of the classic Cole Porter musical Kiss Me, Kate on Roundabout's 2018-19 season lineup, set to star Tony victor Kelli O'Hara.
