Sarah Paulson-Led Appropriate to Extend and Transfer Broadway Theatres

Due to overwhelming ticket demand, the critically-acclaimed Second Stage Theater production of Branden Jacobs-Jenkins’ Appropriate, directed by Lila Neugebauer and starring Sarah Paulson, is extending its run and will transfer to the Belasco Theatre for a limited 13-week engagement, beginning Monday, March 25, 2024. This strictly limited extended run will play through June 23, 2024. Tickets for the limited engagement are now on sale.

Appropriate opened to rave reviews on December 18, 2023, and sold out its initial run, adding a three-week extension due to popular demand. The best-reviewed and best-selling Broadway play of the season, Appropriate has broken Second Stage’s box office record at the Hayes Theater and is on track to be Second Stage’s most successful Hayes production ever. The production will conclude its run at the Hayes on March 3, 2024.

The transfer engagement will feature original company members Sarah Paulson (American Horror Story), Corey Stoll (Billions, House of Cards), Michael Esper (The Last Ship), Natalie Gold (Succession), Graham Campbell (Broadway debut), Alyssa Emily Marvin (Grey House), Lincoln Cohen (Broadway debut), and Everett Sobers (Broadway debut).

Elle Fanning, who originated the role of River, is unavailable to transfer with the production; her replacement will be announced in the coming weeks.

Two-time Pulitzer Prize finalist and Obie Award winner Branden Jacobs-Jenkins (An Octoroon) and Drama Desk Award winner Lila Neugebauer (The Waverly Gallery), invite you to one helluva reunion in the darkly comic American family drama, Appropriate.

It’s summer, the cicadas are singing, and the Lafayette family has returned to their late patriarch’s Arkansas home to deal with the remains of his estate. Toni (Paulson), the eldest daughter, hopes they’ll spend the weekend remembering and reconnecting over their beloved father. Bo (Stoll), her brother, wants to recoup some of the funds he spent caring for Dad at the end of his life. But things take a turn when their estranged brother, Franz (Esper), appears late one night, and mysterious objects are discovered among the clutter. Suddenly, long-hidden secrets and buried resentments can’t be contained, and the family is forced to face the ghosts of their past.
