Rose Byrne and Bobby Cannavale have been cast to star in the contemporary adaptation of Euripides’ tragedy ‘Medea’ at the Brooklyn Academy of Music.
The real-life couple will star from the direction of Simon Stone. Medea will run limited play in the BAM Harvey Theatre in January 2020.
The additional casting is yet to be announced.
Stone’s adaptation of the Medea story uses the true-life crime case of American Debora Green, who poisoned her cheating husband and killed two of her three children in 1995. The adaptation played London’s Barbican in 2019, where it starred Marieke Heebink and Aus Greidanus Jr.
