2nd Stage Theater presents
STRAIGHT WHITE MEN
by Young Jean Lee
directed by Anna D. Shapiro
with Armie Hammer and Denis Arndt
Broadway's The Hayes Theater. 240 West 44th Street, beginning June 29, 2018. For 10 weeks only!
It’s Christmas Eve, and Ed has gathered his three adult sons to celebrate with matching pajamas, trash-talking, and Chinese takeout. But when a question they can’t answer interrupts their holiday cheer, they are forced to confront their own identities. Obie Award-winning playwright Young Jean Lee takes a hilariously ruthless look at the classic American father-son drama. This is one white Christmas like you’ve never seen before.
Featuring Denis Arndt, Kate Bornstein, Josh Charles, Ty Defoe, Armie Hammer and Paul Schneider
An earlier version of STRAIGHT WHITE MEN, written and directed by Young Jean Lee and featuring Austin Pendleton, Pete Simpson, James Stanley, and Gary Wilmes, ran at the Public Theater in 2014, and at the Steppenwolf Theatre Company in 2017, and at the Marin Theatre Company in 2018.
