Tell Me More

In The Wanderers play, celebrity author Abe and actress Julia (Holmes) are both married to other people, but are emailing in secret, which puts their marriages on the line. Separately, Esther and Schmuli, who hardly know each other, have just gone through with an arranged marriage. One pair thinks they can change their futures; the other has their futures laid out for them.

Holmes returns to the New York stage for The Wanderers off Broadway; she previously appeared in 2012's Dead Accounts and 2008's All My Sons, both on Broadway. She is best known for her role as as Joey Potter on Dawson’s Creek, and her other screen credits include Ray Donovan, First Daughter, Don’t Be Afraid of The Dark, and Ang Lee's The Ice Storm.

Another starry name in the cast is Sarah Cooper, the comedian best known for her impersonations of former president Donald Trump. She also has a comedy special on Netflix, Everything's Fine.

The Wanderers in New York follows three previous productions: the world premiere at San Diego's Old Globe and runs at TheatreJ in D.C. and Gesher Theatre in Tel Aviv, Israel. Ziegler has had three other shows go up off Broadway: The Last Match, Actually, and A Delicate Ship.

Director Barry Edelstein has a 25-plus-year career as a director, producer, and writer. He's staged more than 20 Off-Broadway productions, and he's the artistic director of the Old Globe, whose productions of Almost Famous, Allegiance, Bright Star, Meteor Shower, and more have gone on to Broadway.

What to Watch For

  • Katie Holmes makes her Off-Broadway debut with The Wanderers. She's a movie star playing a movie star — how meta!
  • In fact, Ziegler's plays just attract movie stars. Nicole Kidman starred in her play Photograph 51 in London and won an Evening Standard Award for Best Actress for her performance.
  • Edelstein is making a triumphant return to the Off-Broadway stage; he last directed an Off-Broadway show, The Twenty-Seventh Man at The Public Theater, in 2012.
  • The Wanderers is Ziegler's second play at Roundabout's Laura Pels Theatre, following The Last Match in 2015.
