St. Nicholas Church School is back in session.

Previews for the first Broadway revival of Doubt: A Parable begin tomorrow night (February 2) at the newly renamed Todd Haimes Theatre, led by Tyne Daly as the school principal and Liev Schreiber as a parish priest. Quincy Tyler Bernstine and Zoe Kazan round out the onstage company. Doubt is written by John Patrick Shanley and directed by Scott Ellis; the original 2005 production won four Tonys including best play and spawned an Oscar-nominated film version. Opening night is February 29, and it will run through April 14. 

“Sister Aloysius, the exacting principal of a Catholic school in a working-class part of the Bronx, is feared by students and colleagues alike. But when she suspects nefarious relations between the charismatic priest Father Flynn and a student, she’s forced to wrestle with what’s fact, what’s fiction, and how much she’ll risk to expose the difference — all the while wrestling with her own bone-deep doubts.”

Who’s going?

If this had opened during my recent holiday in NY, I would absolutely have gone to it.  I love Tyne Daly!  Liev isn't too shabby either.

Cherry Jones performance in 2005 was powerful! The play won many Tonys back then including play and for Jones along with alot of other awards that season! Not sure if I want to see this production so will wait it out for now.

Cherry Jones was phenomenal as Sister Aloysius. She reminded me so much of the nuns I knew back in my Catholic elementary school days. In contrast, I found the casting of the film version (with the exception of Viola Davis) to be disappointing. Going to see this at Roundabout next week. Looking forward to seeing Tyne Daly's take on Sister Aloysius, but she's got some mighty big shoes to fill in order to surpass Ms. Jones's portrayal.

My most anticipated production of the season. I can hardly wait. Going in two weeks to allow for previews to work out whatever needs to be worked out. However, I think with a cast and team like this... it should be pretty thrilling off the bat. Please report back, anyone going tonight!

Looking forward to seeing both Prayer for the French Public and Doubt over President's weekend - should be a great (and intense) weekend of drama!

Wonder if Tyne was ever approached to replace Cherry Jones the first time around?

Per the credits on Playbill, both production stage manager Charles Means and Father Flynn understudy Chris McGarry are back for more after filling the same roles in the original production

Apparently they canceled the first preview. I wonder what happened.

Tyne Daly is frightening. Exactly right for a 1960s nun.

Cancelled due to a non-COVID-related illness.

Let’s try this again tomorrow!

I wasn’t aware Isabel Keating was Tyne Dalys standby! I’d love to see her go on!

Have to admit im a bit nervous for this one. Tyne is a little too on the nose for the role, but I’m hoping to be surprised. I’ve been dreaming of a Metcalf lead revival for years but I’ll take what I can get

Who didn’t have their lines down so that it led to a cancellation?

Seems like tonight’s rescheduled first preview appears to be going on; Roundabout just deleted yesterday’s cancellation post on their social media platforms. 

Who’s going?

This is one of those roles that could be played impeccably by dozens of actresses. It's not hard to do well. That Daly is leading this revival is notable because she's less buzzy than people like Glenn Close or Fran McDormand or Lesley Manville or Jessica Lange or Sally Field or Metcalf.

I've been waiting to see if the prices for tonight go down on the Roundabout website since I'm mostly interested in seeing Schreiber, but they've remained well over $200. But it looks like the show is now available at the TKTS booth (which it wasn't a few hours ago) for 1/2 off if anyone is interested. (If anyone gets a cheap(er) ticket at the box office, please let us know. I'd still be interested in trying tomorrow.)

Rush tickets were available as of a few moments ago at $40! Full view mezzanine. I’m excited to see Isabel in this role, and on first preview too! What a treat.

Here's a little blurb I wrote for someone else who asked how Isabel was + first preview:

The artistic director & director of the play, Scott Ellis, spoke to us before the performance began. He thanked us for being at first preview, and gave well wishes to Tyne Daly who is expected to resume performances next week.

Isabel Keating as standby Sister Aloysius may be the most incredible understudy performance I have EVER seen.

Scott told us that the understudies were hired 9 DAYS AGO in a strictly observational capacity, with understudy rehearsals beginning sometime after previews. When Tyne fell ill on Friday, they canceled that evening's performance (the original first preview) expecting her to return on Saturday. When later that evening that did not seem likely, Scott turned to Isabel and asked if she was ready to go on.

Isabel had 24 hours of rehearsal time. Scott said that she had never put on her costume, had never been on the (complex & moving) set, never heard the sound & light cues of the show. The focus shifted to getting her ready to perform for this evening.

Sister Aloysius is the leading role of DOUBT. She is on-stage for 80% of the show (only off-stage for a few scenes), and has hundreds of lines - many more than the other actors.

Isabel did the entire show off-script, with all of the blocking and prop work. She milked every funny moment. She sold every heartbreaking moment. She only called for a line once, but did it in-character and you could blink & miss it.

My mouth was literally agape for the first half of the performance before I remembered my manners.
