Last week, the producers of the Broadway production of Orphans, Lyle Kessler's play, directed by Daniel Sullivan, announced that Ben Foster will join the cast immediately in the role of "Treat" replacing Shia LeBeouf (who left due to 'creative differences'). The production wasted no time adjusting the show's marquee as well, and BWW happened to snap the first shots!
Production dates remain unchanged thus far, with previews beginning March 19 and opening night on April 7 at the Schoenfeld Theatre (236 W. 45th Street).
Ben Foster (Treat) has established himself as one of the most versatile actors of his generation. Having received rave reviews for two diverse performances showcased at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival, Foster will be making his Broadway debut in Orphans.
