Robert Downey Jr. To Make His Broadway Debut In ‘McNeal’

Guess who’s strutting down Broadway like a peacock in a top hat? None other than the one, the only, Robert Downey Jr.! That’s right, the man of many talents, now crowned with an Oscar, is set to grace the Great White Way with his presence in the upcoming play McNeal.

Lincoln Center Theater is pulling out all the stops to bring you this gem by Ayad Akhtar, under the keen direction of Bartlett Sher. And when does the fun begin, you ask? Well, mark your calendars for September 5th, because that’s when the previews start at the Vivian Beaumont Theater. And if you’re a fan of grand openings, September 30th is your lucky day, because that’s when the curtains rise for the big debut!

But what’s McNeal all about, you wonder? Prepare yourselves for a rollercoaster ride of wit and wisdom! Picture this: Jacob McNeal, played by the illustrious Downey Jr., is a literary powerhouse with a knack for nabbing the spotlight. He’s got a son who’s as distant as Pluto, a new novel up his sleeve, and a fascination with Artificial Intelligence that’s straight out of a sci-fi flick. Pulitzer Prize-winner Ayad Akhtar isn’t just serving up your typical play; he’s cooking up a tantalizing tale that’ll leave you questioning the very fabric of storytelling.

And hold onto your popcorn, because the cast lineup isn’t complete just yet! Who else will join Downey Jr. on stage? It’s a mystery for now, but one thing’s for sure: it’s going to be a star-studded affair!

Not content with just stealing the show, Team Downey is rolling up their sleeves to produce the whole shebang! That’s right, it’s a Downey Jr. production through and through!

Now, for the moment you’ve all been waiting for: tickets! Get ready to snag yours starting May 21st, because they’re going faster than hotcakes on a Sunday morning! And if you’re lucky enough to fall into the 18 to 35 age bracket, you might just score yourself a steal of a deal at $35.50 a pop!

So, buckle up, Broadway buffs, because Robert Downey Jr. is coming for that EGOT, and he’s bringing a whirlwind of talent and charisma with him!
