ABOUT THE SHOW

Set in New York in 1982, Kenneth Lonergan's play follows 48 hours in the lives of three very lost young souls: Warren (Michael Cera), a dejected 19-year-old who has just stolen $15,000 from his abusive, tycoon father; Dennis (Kieran Culkin), his charismatic, drug-dealing friend who helps Warren put the stolen money to good use; and Jessica (Tavi Gevinson), the anxiously insightful young woman who Warren yearns for.

TRIVIA

  • All three cast members make their Broadway debuts with this production, as does the playwright.
  • Cera and Culkin briefly appeared in the play at Australia’s Sydney Opera house in 2013. Culkin played the role of Warren in a 2002 production in London’s West End.
