‘Appropriate,’ Starring Sarah Paulson, Set to Extend Broadway Run, Move to Another Theater

Appropriate, starring Sarah Paulson and Corey Stoll, is transferring to another Broadway theater to extend its run.

The Branden Jacobs-Jenkins play will move to the Belasco Theatre starting March 25, a few weeks after it plays its last performance at the Hayes Theater. The limited run will play the Belasco Theatre through June 23.

Elle Fanning, who is starring in the current run, will not be able to transfer with the production. Fanning previously told The Hollywood Reporter she was scheduled to start filming the Bob Dylan biopic A Complete Unknown immediately after the play’s run. Her replacement will be announced in the coming weeks.

Directed by Lila Neugebauer, the play follows several siblings returning to their late father’s home to settle his affairs, only to discover a disturbing artifact among his personal effects, which unleashes a flood of family tension and differing views. The cast also includes Michael Esper, Natalie Gold, Graham Campbell, Alyssa Emily Marvin, Lincoln Cohen and Everett Sobers, all of whom will transfer with the production.

The transfer, from the non-profit theater owned by Second Stage, now sets the play up for a commercial run. Ambassador Theatre Group, Annapurna Theatre and Bad Robot Live, all of whom enhanced the non-profit production, are lead producers on the new run.

The current run began at the Hayes Theater on Nov. 29, with an opening date on Dec. 18. The play received a largely positive critical reception and has played to healthy capacities since the start of its run.

Appropriate is scheduled to play its last performance at the Hayes Theater on March 3. It takes over the Belasco Theatre from How to Dance in Ohio, which played its last performance on Feb. 11.
