Joshua Malina to Join Broadway’s Leopoldstadt, Levy & Krumholtz to Depart

Tom Stoppard’s Olivier Award-winning play Leopoldstadt is now playing on Broadway at the Longacre Theatre and new casting has been revealed today.

Beginning Tuesday, March 14, Joshua Malina (The West Wing, Sports Night) will join the cast of Leopoldstadt as Hermann, with Dave Register (Harry Potter and the Cursed Child) also joining as Fritz, and Cody Braverman as Young Leo. Leopoldstadt will also welcome current company members Jesse Aaronson in the role of Leo, in addition to his current role as Aaron, Charlotte Graham in the role of Nellie, and Sarah Killough in the role of Eva, with new cast member Ali Rose Dachis taking over as an understudy.

Original stars Arty Froushan, David Krumholtz, Caissie Levy, and Tedra Millan will play their final performances on Sunday, March 12.

Set in Vienna, Leopoldstadtwhich includes several members of the original West End company, takes its title from the Jewish quarter. This passionate drama of love and endurance begins in the last days of 1899 and follows one extended family deep into the heart of the 20th Century. Full of his customary wit and beauty, Tom Stoppard’s late work spans fifty years of time over two hours. “Tom Stoppard is endlessly intrigued by questions of fate, chance, coincidence, in history as well as in love, and in the epic, breathtaking Leopoldstadt, he examines the consequence of an entire people trapped in a common fate” (The Washington Post). With a cast of 38 actors and direction by Patrick Marber, Leopoldstadt is now playing on Broadway.

Leopoldstadt marks Tom Stoppard’s 19th play on Broadway since his groundbreaking Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead opened 55 years ago. Stoppard has won four Best Play Tony Awards, more than any other playwright in history.
