‘Faith’ flowers in April

Fiennes drama set for Booth Theater

Broadway’s got faith in April.

The Gate Theater production of Brian Friel’s “Faith Healer,” starring Ralph Fiennes, has set April 18 as the start date for a 15-week run at the Booth Theater. Opening night is May 4.

Production, helmed by Jonathan Kent, co-stars Cherry Jones and Ian McDiarmid. Fiennes plays the title healer, with Jones, who left her Tony-winning role in “Doubt” Jan. 8, as his lover and McDiarmid as his manager.

Fiennes won a Tony for his last appearance on Broadway, a 1995 production of “Hamlet” staged by Kent.

Kent previously directed McDiarmid in a 2001 production of “Faith” at the Almeida Theater, which the pair used to run.

For the new production, Jonathan Fensom provides sets and costumes, with lights by Mark Henderson.

Production, with Ingrid Craigie in the role that will be played by Jones, begins a run at the Gate in Dublin Feb. 2.
