Two set for ‘Homecoming’

McKean, Esparza joining Pinter play

Michael McKean and Raul Esparza will join Ian McShane in the cast of the Broadway revival of Harold Pinter’s “The Homecoming,” set to begin perfs at the Cort Theater in November.

The 1965 play centers on the return of a man to his North London home with his new wife in tow. McKean, whose Rialto credits include “The Pajama Game” and “Hairspray,” plays the brother to the family patriarch (McShane). Esparza, nommed for a Tony in the spring for his lead role in “Company,” portrays a pimp who is one of the patriarch’s sons.

Daniel Sullivan (“Proof,” “Stuff Happens”) directs the revival, with a design team including Eugene Lee (set), Kenneth Posner (lights) and Jess Goldstein (costumes).

Latest production will be the second Rialto revival for the play — which originally appeared on Broadway in 1967 and took home the top play Tony — and the first Broadway production for the playwright since he won a Nobel in 2005. A 1991 Roundabout revival starred Lindsay Crouse, Roy Dotrice and Daniel Gerroll.

The three actors besides McShane, McKean and Esparza remain to be cast, including the part of Ruth, the seductive new wife.

Produced by Jeffrey Richards and Jerry Frankel (“Talk Radio,” “Spring Awakening”) and capitalized at approximately $2 million, the show goes into rehearsal Oct. 15 and begins previews Nov. 16, with an opening set for Dec. 4.
