Big news theatre fans. One of Broadway's most celebrated plays is heading back to the stage. Burn This, which first premiered on Broadway in 1987, is set to begin previews in March 2017 and play thru June. Directing the play is Tony winner Michael Mayer (Spring Awakening, Hedwig and the Angry Inch). As of now now no casting has been announced.
However there is speculation that Academy Award nominee Jake Gyllenhaal will star in the role of Burton. Here's hoping those rumors turn into fact. So what is the show about? Well I'll tell you.Burn This tells the story of Anna, a dancer and choreographer who must deal with the sudden death of her roommate and dance partner Robbie.
Upon his passing, Anna is visited by Robbie's brother Pale, who comes to pick up his belongings and ends up staying on in her apartment, turning her life upside down. As of now no theatre or on sale date has been announced. However when it does you can be certain that we will be selling it. Stay tuned to this website for more info. Until next time theatre fans.
