Producers Stacey Mindich and Jessica R. Jenen announced today the postponement of the Broadway revival of Burn This, due to scheduling conflicts with the show’s star. The show is now aiming for its Broadway bow during the 2017-2018 season.

Ambassador Theatre Group has commented that although disappointed to hear that Burn This will not be proceeding, they will soon announce a new production to launch the beautiful Hudson Theatre in 2017.

BURN THIS premiered Off-Broadway in 1987, at Theatre 890. Directed by Marshall W. Mason, the cast featured Jonathan Hogan, Joan Allen, John Malkovich, and Lou Liberatore. The play transferred to Broadway at the Plymouth Theatre later that same year. The cast reprised their roles for the Broadway production.

Allen Won the Tony Award for Best Actress in a Play, and Liberatore was nominated for Best Featured Actor in a Play. Drama Desk Award nominations went to Liberatore and Malkovich.

The Signature Theatre Company revival, directed by James Houghton, opened in 2002 at the Union Square Theatre. The cast featured Edward Norton, Catherine Keener, Ty Burrell, andDallas Roberts. Norton won an Obie Award and both he and the production received Lucille Lortel Award nominations.
