About Lobby Hero

Michael Cera, Chris Evans, Brian Tyree Henry and Bel Powley star in Kenneth Lonergan’s LOBBY HERO.

What happens when emotions come in conflict with principles, and how do choices under pressure define who we really are? The lobby of a Manhattan apartment building is much more than a waiting area for four New Yorkers involved in a murder investigation. It’s a testing ground for what happens when personal and professional personas find themselves at odds. A young security guard with big ambitions clashes with his stern boss, an intense rookie cop and her unpredictable partner in a play from the 2017 Oscar-winning writer of Manchester by the Sea.

Tell Me More

Captain America makes his Broadway debut in the Main Step premiere of Kenneth Lonergan’s play. Chris Evans leads an all-star cast, which also featured Michael Cera, Brian Tyree Henry, and Bel Powley. Cera plays Jeff, a security guard at a luxury apartment building who is just trying to make it through the night shift and get his life back after a string of bad luck. His boss, William (Henry), stops by to check in on Bill and ends up spilling a secret. When two police officers, Dawn (Powley) and Bill (Evans), stop by, Jeff finds himself drawn to Dawn, who is in the midst of a disagreement with her partner, Bill. The play broaches topics from sexual harassment to workplace abuse to racial profiling, and the timely and thought-provoking story will make you look at today’s headlines in an entirely new light.

Recommended for ages 13 +. Children under the age of 4 are not permitted in the theatre.

What to watch for

“Lobby Hero” premiere off Broadway in 2001 at Playwrights’ Horizons.

The show marks the first production in the renovated Helen Hayes Theatre, which is now under the ownership of Second Stage Theatre. The nonprofit company plans to produce the work of living American playwrights in the space.

Chris Evans read Rebecca Solnit’s “The Mother of All Questions” to educate himself about being an ally to women, which is not what his character, a sleezy cop, does in the play.
