More cast and creatives have been revealed for the world premiere production of Brokeback Mountain at @sohoplace theatre this Spring 2023.
Already announced are the play’s lead stars – Tony and BAFTA Award nominated Mike Faist (Dear Evan Hansen on Broadway, West Side Story film) as Jack, and Academy Award nominated Lucas Hedges (Manchester By The Sea, Boy Erased) as Ennis.
They will be joined by Emily Fairn (The Responder) making her stage debut as Alma, Paul Hickey as Older Ennis and Martin Marquez as Joe/Bill/Jack’s Father.
Eddi Reader (Fairground Attraction) will play The Balladeer, and sing the show’s songs.
Annie Proulx’s acclaimed novel of Brokeback Mountain has been adapted into a new play with music by Ashley Robinson, with songs written by The Feeling’s Dan Gillespie Sells, and direction by Jonathan Butterell.
Joining them in the creative team will be Tom Pye (Set & Costume Design), David Finn (Lighting Design), Christopher Shutt (Sound Design), Shaheen Baig (Casting Director), Tommy Ross-Williams (Intimacy Director), Kevin McCurdy (Fight Director), Phil Wilding (Production Manager), Zeb Lalljee (Costume Supervisor), Sam Cox (Wigs Maker/Supervisor), Lily Mollgaard (Props Supervisor), and Mary Irwin and Ben Furey (Vocal/Dialect Coach).
Dan Gillespie Sells is reuniting with director Jonathan Butterell for the show, following their successful collaboration on Everybody’s Talking About Jamie – which is coming back to London next year.
Proulx’s novel was famously turned into an Oscar winning 2005 movie by Ang Lee, starring Heath Ledger, Jake Gyllenhaal, Anne Hathaway, and Michelle Williams.
Brokeback Mountain starts its run @sohoplace on 10 May, playing to 12 August 2023.
