Sarah Paulson Graces Broadway Once More in ‘Appropriate’

Acclaimed actress Sarah Paulson is set to make her grand return to the Broadway stage in a new production of Branden Jacobs-Jenkins‘ play, Appropriate. The announcement was made yesterday morning, sending waves of excitement through the theater community and Paulson’s devoted fan base.

Paulson, known for her exceptional TV performances in Deadwood, American Horror Story and Ratched, and films like 12 Years a Slave, she hasn’t graced a Broadway stage since her appearance as Lisa Morrison in 2013’s Collected Stories.

Before that, she brought the character of Laura Wingfield to life in a 2005 fresh take on The Glass Menagerie. She even stepped into the shoes of Tess Goode in The Sisters Rosensweig.

A Sneak Peek into Sarah Paulson in Appropriate

Branden Jacobs-Jenkins Appropriate first debuted Off-Broadway in 2014. It’s a fierce family drama focusing on themes of inheritance, clashing family values and painful past legacies, replete with buried secrets. While the characterizations can be seen as archetypal, they definitely lend themselves to colorful interpretations.

Sarah Paulson will step into the lead role of Toni Lafayette, a foul-mouthed divorcèe and eldest daughter who finds an unsettling collection of photographs while clearing out their late father’s home. This discovery sets off a chain of events that forces the Lafayette family to confront their troubled history.

The combination of Paulson‘s compelling acting and Jenkins‘ narrative under the direction of Lila Neguebauer promises for powerful performances set to begin at the end of November ahead of its official opening on December 18. Additional cast and creative team members have yet to be announced.
