The Araca Group (“Wicked”), which was involved in the development of “Disgraced,” has booked the show into the Lyceum Theater for an October opening with a mostly different cast than the one who played in the show during its 2013 Off Broadway run (pictured, above).

Hari Dhillon, who appeared in the London incarnation of “Disgraced,” will take on the role played Off Broadway by Aasif Mandvi, whose commitments to an upcoming HBO series will keep him from doing the Broadway staging of the play. Kimberly Senior, who directed the two previous U.S. productions of “Disgraced,” directs.

Meanwhile, “Mothers and Sons,” the Terrence McNally title that was nominated for the best play Tony, has set a closing date for June 22 at the Golden Theater. Lead actress Tyne Daly had been nommed for a lead actress Tony, but came away empty-handed.

“Digraced” begins previews Sept. 27 prior to an Oct. 23 opening. The Lyceum’s current occupant, “The Realistic Joneses,” shutters July 6.
