The production, which is nominated for five Olivier Awards, will play at the Brooklyn Academy of Music’s Harvey Theater from May 8th-31st. Tickets go on sale March 10 for BAM members and March 20 to the general public via¬†BAM.org.

McAvoy will be joined in New York by fellow London cast members Anita-Joy Uwajeh as Roxanne and Eben Figueiredo as Christian.
