Set in the vivid world of prizefighting’s past, Golden Boy, Clifford Odets’ most popular play, is the story of Joe Bonaparte, a promising young violinist who forsakes his family and artistic dreams for the lure of fame and fortune in the ring. Joe’s immigrant father (Tony Shalhoub), Moody, Siggie, Roxy, Pepper, Tokio (Danny Burstein) and Lorna Moon – “the dame from Newark” (Yvonne Strahovski) with whom Joe (Seth Numrich) falls in love- are just some of the colorful characters sharing the excitement of Joe’s rise up the ranks, and the conflicts that come with money and fame. Bartlett Sher (Awake and Sing!, Joe Turner’s Come and Gone, South Pacific) directs this 75th Anniversary production in the very same theater in which it premiered!
