Foster set for ‘Burning’

Cast announced for New Group show

Hunter Foster is among the thesps to sign on for the New Group’s Off Broadway world preem of Thomas Bradshaw play “Burning.”

Foster, last on Broadway in “Million Dollar Quartet,” will appear with an ensemble that includes Stephen Tyrone Williams (Showtime pic “Children of God”), Vladimir Versailles (“The Wood”), Danny Mastrogiorgio (“Stunning”) and Andrew Garman (“A Bright New Boise”).

Play connects two storylines, one about an orphaned teen taken in by a gay couple in the mid-’80s and the other about a contempo black painter whose work prompts reactions that he didn’t intend.

Bradshaw’s previous plays include recent Chicago outing “Mary” as well as “The Bereaved” and “Strom Thurmond is Not a Racist.”

New Group a.d. Scott Elliott helms the production, which launches the org’s season. Slate also includes new David Rabe play “An Early History of Fire” and Erika Sheffer’s “Russian Transport.”

“Burning” begins previews Oct. 26 ahead of a Nov. 14 opening at Gotham’s Theater Row.
