The Broadway revival of Lanford Wilson's 1987 drama Burn This officially opens April 16—but celebrated a day early, on April 15. The Michael Mayer-helmed staging at the Hudson Theatre stars Golden Globe winner and Emmy nominee Keri Russell (The Americans) and three-time Emmy nominee Adam Driver (Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Girls), along with Tony nominees David Furr (Noises Off) and Brandon Uranowitz (Falsettos).

Set in downtown New York in the 1980s, Burn This follows the troubled relationship between a restaurant owner, Pale (Driver), and a dancer named Anna (Russell), in the wake of a shared tragedy—the death of Pale’s brother and Anna’s roommate and dance partner.

The original production premiered Off-Broadway in 1987 starring John Malkovich as Pale and Joan Allen as Anna. 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.
