Actors set to join Gyllenhaal Off Broadway
Brian F. O’Byrne and Michelle Gomez will join Jake Gyllenhaal in the Off Broadway play “If There Is I Haven’t Found It Yet.”
O’Byrne (“Brotherhood,” NBC’s “Prime Suspect”), who won a Tony for his role in 2004 outing “Frozen,” will play the environmentalist father of an overweight teen girl who befriends her drifter uncle, played by Gyllenhaal in his Off Broadway debut. Gomez, who appeared in “Boeing Boeing” on the West End, stars at the teen girl’s mother.
The role of the daughter has yet to be cast.
Design team includes Beowulf Borritt (sets), Susan Hilferty (costumes), Natasha Katz (lights) and Obadiah Eaves (music and sound).
Nick Payne’s play originally premiered at London’s Bush Theater in 2009. Stateside production begins previews Aug. 24 ahead of a Sept. 20 opening at the Roundabout’s Laura Pels Theater.
