Abingdon Theatre Company will give Elizabeth Coplan's 'Til Death an Off-Broadway premiere, playing Theatre Row's Theatre 5 beginning November 19 ahead of a November 30 opening night. Performances will continue through December 23.
Leading the production will be two-time Tony winner Judy Kaye (Nice Work If You Can Get It) and Robert Cuccioli (Jekyll & Hyde), alongside Michael Lee Brown (Dear Evan Hansen), Whitney Morse (The Violet Sisters), Dominick LaRuffa Jr. (The Irishman), and Amy Hargreaves (Homeland). Casting is by Karie Koppel of Koppel Casting.
The play, inspired by Coplan's own story of personal loss, centers on a mother's choice that uncovers some hidden family secrets.
Chad Austin is directing, leading a creative team that includes lighting designer Dawn Chiang, scenic designer Teresa L. Williams, projection designer Lisa Renkel, costume designer Antonio Consuegra, prop designer Nicole Emmons, and sound designer Jesse Starr. Allison Hohman will be production stage manager.
The work previously received workshop performances in 2017 via Parley Productions in Seattle, and in 2021 via Manhattan Repertory Theatre and Create Theater. Abingdon held a developmental workshop last year.
