About the Show

Good writers borrow, great writers steal. Jacob McNeal (Academy Award® winner Robert Downey Jr.) is a great writer, one of our greatest, a perpetual candidate for the Nobel Prize in Literature. But McNeal also has an estranged son, a new novel, old axes to grind and an unhealthy fascination with Artificial Intelligence. Pulitzer Prize-winner Ayad Akhtar’s new play is a startling and wickedly smart examination of the inescapable humanity – and increasing inhumanity – of the stories we tell. Directed by Tony Award® winner Bartlett Sher.

About the Theatre

Vivian Beaumont Theatre

150 W 65th St
New York, NY 10036

The Vivian Beaumont Theater, designed by architect Eero Saarinen, opened on October 21, 1965. Initially home to the Repertory Theater of Lincoln Center until its closure in 1973, it later hosted Joseph Papp’s New York Shakespeare Festival from 1973 to 1977. The theater underwent periods of external rentals and limited use until 1985 when Lincoln Center Theater took over management. Under Lincoln Center Theater, led by figures like Gregory Mosher, Bernard Gersten, Linda LeRoy Janklow, and Andre Bishop, it has become the largest not-for-profit theater in the U.S., producing a diverse year-round program across the Beaumont and other NYC venues.
