Tony-Winning Revival Of ‘Take Me Out’ Starring Jesse Williams Returning To Broadway In The Fall
Producers of the show Take Me Out, which had an acclaimed revival run in Spring of 2022, have announced that it will be heading to the Schoenfeld Theater with Jesse Williams and Jesse Tyler Ferguson returning to their prior roles.
Williams played baseball player Darren Lemming and Ferguson was accountant Mason Marzac who takes a liking to baseball after Lemming comes out as gay. Much of the play takes place between Lemming and his teammates in the locker room and dealing with the reactions to his reveal, but it also shows occasional encounters with Marzac and other scenes.
It was first written by Richard Greenberg and debuted at the Walter Kerr Theater in 2003 and won the Tony for Best Play that year. The revival is directed by Scott Ellis, who recently directed the Tootsie musical in 2019 as well as the acclaimed 2014 revival of The Elephant Man starring Bradley Cooper.
The show will run for 14 weeks with the first night on Thursday, October 27. General sale for tickets begins on Friday, August 26 at 10 a.m. EST.
Here’s a sample of the incredible Take Me Out revival created before the 2022 Tony Awards. The show would go on to win Best Revival of a Play as well as Best Featured Actor in a Play for Ferguson, though Williams and Michael Oberholtzer were also nominated.
