Amy Ryan to Star in Doubt on Broadway, Tyne Daly Departs Production

Roundabout Theatre Company announced today that Academy Award and two-time Tony nominee Amy Ryan will assume the role of Sister Aloysius in the new Broadway production of John Patrick Shanley’s Tony Award & Pulitzer Prize-winning play Doubt: A Parable, directed by Tony Award nominee Scott Ellis.

She takes over the role from Tyne Daly, who was unexpectedly hospitalized earlier this month. The production states she “unfortunately needs to withdraw from the production while she receives medical care; she is thankfully expected to make a full recovery.”

“With respect and admiration for Tyne, we wish her the best and a quick recovery. We are grateful that Amy Ryan said yes – in a quick minute – to join our company and take on the role of Sister Aloysius. We deeply appreciate Isabel Keating, who remarkably stepped in with a day of rehearsal and allowed us to get the production up on its feet during this first week of performances,” notes director Scott Ellis.

Amy Ryan’s first performance will be Tuesday, February 13, 2024. For performances through Sunday, February 11, the role of Sister Aloysius will be played by the understudy, Tony Award nominee Isabel Keating (The Boy from Oz).

Doubt: A Parable now opens officially on Thursday, March 7, 2024. This is a limited engagement through Sunday, April 14, 2024 at the Todd Haimes Theatre on Broadway.

The cast of Doubt: A Parable also stars Tony & SAG Award winner Liev Schreiber as Father Flynn, Quincy Tyler Bernstine as Mrs. Muller, and Zoe Kazan as Sister James.
