Cast set for ‘Joe Turner’

Coleman, Hudson, Gurira to star

Chad L. Coleman (“Two Trains Running” at the Signature Theater), Ernie Hudson (“Ghostbusters”), Danai Gurira (“In the Continuum”) and Aunjanue Ellis (“The Tempest”) are among the cast of the Broadway revival of August Wilson’s “Joe Turner’s Come and Gone.”

Coleman portrays the play’s central character, Herald Loomis, a man who arrives at a Pittsburgh boarding house with his daughter in tow. Wilson’s play, which ran on Broadway in 1988 and is part of the scribe’s 10-play cycle about African-American life in the 20th century, is set in 1911.

Bartlett Sher helms the production for Lincoln Center Theater, which will mount the show at the Belasco Theater while the nonprofit’s dedicated Broadway stage remains occupied by the hit run of Sher’s staging of “South Pacific.”

Also in the “Joe Turner” cast are Roger Robinson (“Seven Guitars”), LaTanya Richardson Jackson (“For Colored Girls …”), Andre Holland (“Wig Out”), Marsha Stephanie Blake, Michael Cummings, Arliss Howard and Amari Rose Leigh.

“Joe Turner” begins previews March 19 and opens April 16.
