Ethan Hawke joins a ‘Quartet’

Thesp signs on for indie drama

Ethan Hawke is in tune with indie drama “A Late Quartet,” signing on to star as a member of a string quartet for Opening Night Prods.

Yaron Zilberman’s directing “Quartet” from a script he co-wrote with Seth Grossman. Story centers on a quartet whose members have performed together for 25 years and have to adjust to one of them retiring due to Parkinson’s disease.

Hawke will portray the second violinist whose desire for more solos leads him to have an affair with his jogging partner, leaving him remorseful and saddened by the state of his marriage.

Hawke recently directed the Off Broadway play “A Lie of the Mind” for the New Group and just wrapped production on “The Woman in the Fifth.”

Once “A Late Quartet” is wrapped, he will begin on another play for the New Group, “Blood From a Stone” and on “The Numbers Station” — produced under his Under the Influence production banner, for which Hawke is attached to star.
