“You can imagine them in bed together.”
That’s what Tony-Award-winning director Michael Mayer has to say about the crackling first publicity image of Keri Russell and Adam Driver for their upcoming Broadway play, Burn This. “You feel this erotic and emotional connection very strongly,” he adds.
The Star Wars: Episode IX costars are returning to the stage for the first ever revival of Lanford Wilson’s Pulitzer Prize winning drama, which begins previews on March 15 with opening night set for April 16 at New York’s Hudson Theatre. Brandon Uranowitz (Falsettos) and David Furr (Noises Off) round out the cast.
Russell and Driver lead the action as Anna, a professional dancer and choreographer, and Pale, a coke-addicted hyper-active restaurant manager, who are brought together when Robbie, Anna’s dance partner and Pale’s brother, dies in a mysterious boating accident. The play follows the explosive chemistry between these two strangers as Wilson probes love, lust, and the power of raw attraction in his smoldering, award-winning play. The original production of Burn This starred John Malkovich and Joan Allen in Driver and Russell’s roles in a buzzy production that made the leap from its 1987 Off Broadway iteration to the Great White Way.

Tickets are now on sale for the upcoming Broadway revival of Lanford Wilson’s Burn This. Tony winner Michael Mayer will direct the highly anticipated new staging, set to begin previews on March 15, 2019 with an opening scheduled for April 16 at the Hudson Theatre. Keri Russell and Adam Driver will star alongside Brandon Uranowitz and David Furr.
Burn This tells the story of four New Yorkers whose lives are uprooted by a young dancer’s accidental death. Set in downtown New York in the 1980s, the drama explores the spiritual and emotional isolation of Pale (Driver) and the modern dancer Anna (Russell), and their tempestuous relationship after they are brought together in the wake of a life-changing personal tragedy.
Burn This is scheduled to play a limited engagement through July 7.
Growing up on the poorer side of town, 18-year old Michelle Winston (Keri Russell) not only appreciated the opportunity to make some money babysitting for the wealthy, upwardly mobile Bertrands, but takes pleasure in being surrounded by all the material trappings of their home. Bill (Stephen Collins) and Sallie Bertrand were a young, successful couple who seemed to live a happy, typical existence. But that storybook tale comes to a tragic end when Sallie is found dead in her home, the victim of an apparent suicide. Feeling an obligation to-and sympathy for-Bill and the two children, Michelle becomes more and more a fixture in the Bertrand home. But as she begins to spend virtually all of her free time there, and is seen driving Sallie’s new car and wearing her old jewelry, she quickly alienates her mother and all her school friends with her new-found responsibilities. This sudden transformation is also looked upon suspiciously by the police. When the circumstances surrounding Sallie’s death are re-examined, Michelle soon finds herself the prime suspect in her death. Michelle’s friends, jealous of her all-consuming relationship with the Bertrands, suspect there’s something unpleasant happening between her and the supposedly grieving widower. Their suspicions prove to be fairly accurate as Bill does make advances towards the impressionable schoolgirl. But his intentions are not based on love, but to set up his attractive baby-sitter for the murder of his wife.

The four-character play will star previously announced leads Adam Driver and Keri Russell, with Tony nominees David Furr and Brandon Uranowitz completing the cast.
Michael Mayer will direct the new staging, which swoops in on a prime vacancy created at the Hudson by the Jan. 6 closing of another Mayer production, the Go-Go’s musical Head Over Heels.
First seen in 1987 in a celebrated production that paired John Malkovich and Joan Allen, Burn This is a smoldering story of love and raw attraction set in gritty 1980s New York. It centers on two strangers brought together by an untimely death who forge an explosive connection.
David Binder, who last teamed with director Mayer on the hit 2014 revival of Hedwig and the Angry Inch, is lead producer on the Wilson play, which has assembled a Tony-winning design team of Derek McLane (sets), Clint Ramos (costumes) and Natasha Katz (lighting).
Previews start March 15 at the Hudson, with an official opening set for April 16. General ticket sales begin Dec. 2.
The play marks Driver’s return to Broadway for the first time since 2011, while Russell will make her Broadway debut, following six seasons on the critically adored FX series The Americans.
Furr was last on Broadway in a 2016 revival of Noises Off, earning a Tony nomination for his role. Uranowitz received Tony nominations in 2015 for An American in Paris and in 2017 for Falsettos. He is currently appearing in the musical The Band’s Visit.
The Broadway revival of Burn This was originally announced to reopen the newly restored Hudson in early 2017, with Jake Gyllenhaal slated to play the role of coke-snorting restaurant manager Pale. Those plans fell apart due to Gyllenhaal’s scheduling conflicts, and the play got back on track late last year with Driver in the role.
Keri was spotted on the set of her upcoming thriller Antlers in Canada.
