Claire and Hank Azaria are joining John Krasinski in the play Dry Powder, the Public Theater announced today, and ‘Hamilton’ helmer Thomas Kail will direct the production, which is debuting in March.
Described as a reflection on the price of success as viewed through the people molding and messing with the American economy, the play will begin previews March 1 and has been extended to run through April 24. An official opening date has yet to be announced.
Penned by Sarah Burgess and making its world premiere, the play stars Krasinksi as Seth, the managing director of a private equity firm who engineers a fix to rescue his boss from an embarrassing public relations nightmare after his extravagant lifestyle is held up for scrutiny against the mass layoffs he triggered at a national grocery chain. However, Seth discovers that his female counterpart Jenny (Danes) has other, more ruthless plans for the struggling company acquired as part of the firm’s image rehab.
The off-Broadway production will be staged by Thomas Kail, hot off directing the musical smash Hamilton, which played a sell-out extended premiere run at the Public earlier this year and has since transferred to Broadway, generating ecstatic reviews and stellar grosses. Sanjit De Silva rounds out the show’s cast.

Nevins also addressed the fate of Quinn (Rupert Friend), who suffered sarin gas poisoning last season — and was last seen locked in a hospital room with Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes). “I know and have seen exactly as much as you guys have seen,” he said. “There is no definitive answer given.”Continue Reading (…)
