Full Broadway cast announced for Patriots

Tuesday, 27 February 2024

Producers are pleased to announce full Broadway casting for the Almeida Theatre production of Patriots, the shockingly timely new play by Peter Morgan, creator of “The Crown.” Directed by three-time Olivier Award winner and Artistic Director of the Almeida Rupert Goold, Patriots will open April 22, 2024 at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre (243 West 47th Street). Previews will begin April 1, 2024. 

Tickets for the strictly limited 12-week engagement are on sale at, 212-239-6200.

Patriots, which won the 2023 Critics’ Circle Award for Best New Play, comes to Broadway following a record-breaking run at London’s Almeida Theatre where it was the fastest-selling new play in the theatre’s history, and a sold out 12-week run in the West End at the Noël Coward Theatre, where it recouped its investment.

In 1991, after the fall of the Soviet Union, the new Russia belongs to its oligarchs – and no one is more powerful than billionaire Boris Berezovsky. “If the politicians cannot save Russia,” he insists, “then we businessmen must.” When an eventual successor to President Boris Yeltsin is needed, Berezovsky turns to the little-known deputy mayor of St. Petersburg, Vladimir Putin (Keen). But soon Putin’s ruthless rise threatens Berezovsky’s reign, setting off a riveting, near-Shakespearean confrontation between the two powerful, fatally flawed men.

As previously announced, Tony and Emmy Award nominee Michael Stuhlbarg (Broadway: The Pillowman; Film: A Serious Man, Call Me by Your Name; Television: “Boardwalk Empire”) will return to Broadway for the first time in almost 20 years to star as Boris Berezovsky. Original London cast member Will Keen will make his Broadway debut, recreating his mesmerizing Olivier Award-winning performance as Vladimir Putin. Original London cast member Luke Thallon (Evening Standard Award nominee for the Almeida’s Albion) will also make his Broadway debut as Russian oligarch and politician Roman Abramovich.

The 18-member cast will also feature Stella Baker (Television: “The Republic of Sarah,” “Tell Me Your Secrets”) as Marina Litvinenko; Ronald Guttman(Broadway: Coastal Disturbances; Almeida/West End: Patriots; Film:The Hunt for Red October) as Professor Perelman; Alex Hurt(Broadway: Cat on a Hot Tin Roof; Television: “Bonding,” “The Good Fight”) as Alexander Litvinenko; Rosie Benton (Broadway: The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, Stick Fly) as Berezovsky’s Mother & Others; Jeff Biehl (Broadway: Machinal) as Teacher/FSB Boss & Others; Peter Bradbury (Broadway: The Shark is Broken, Hangmen) as Voloshin/Nurse & Others; Camila Canó-Flaviá (Broadway: Network; Off-Broadway: Mac Beth, The Coast Starlight) as Tatiana/Nina Berezovsky & Others; Marianna Gailus (Training: Juilliard) as Katya & Others; Paul Kynman (Almeida/West End: Patriots; Film: Clash of the Titans, Asteroid City) as Korzhakov/Yeltsin & Others; Adam Poss (Television: “Chicago Med,” “Chicago Fire”) as Lawyer/Home Office & Others; and Nick Rehberger(Broadway: Fiddler on the Roof, The Glass Menagerie) as Assistant/Kahneman & Others. Understudies are Benjamin Bonenfant (New York: Theatre for a New Audience, Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival), Danielle Chaves (Regional: Oregon Shakespeare Festival), Joe Forbrich (Film: Bridge of Spies; TV: “Law & Order”) and Tony Ward (Broadway: The Audience, Twelfth Night/Richard III).

The creative team for Patriots features three-time Tony Award nominated set designer Miriam Buether, co-costume designers Deborah Andrews and Miriam Buether, lighting designer Jack Knowles, Tony Award-winning sound designer and composer Adam Cork, projection designer Ash J Woodward and movement director Polly Bennett.
