Burn This Summary

Lanford Wilson’s Burn This, directed by Tony Award winner Michael Mayer (Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Spring Awakening), will return to Broadway starring Adam Driver in 2019.

Burn This tells the story of four New Yorkers whose lives are uprooted by a young dancer's accidental death. Set in downtown New York in the raw and gritty 1980s, the combustible drama explores the spiritual and emotional isolation of the dangerous, sexy, raw and demanding Pale (Adam Driver) and the modern dancer Anna, and their tempestuous relationship after the two iconoclasts are brought together in the wake of a life-changing personal tragedy.

The original production of Burn This premiered Off-Broadway in 1987 starring John Malkovitch as Pale and Joan Allen as Anna, before transferring to Broadway in a critically acclaimed, award-winning production that ran from October 14, 1987 through October 29, 1988 for a total of 437 performances at the Plymouth Theatre.
