Caroline Neff, Carolyn Braver take Airline Highway to Broadway

Written by

Chicago actors Caroline Neff and Carolyn Braver will reprise their roles in Manhattan Theatre Club's transfer of Steppenwolf Theatre Company's production of Airline Highway, it was announced today. Neff, in an aching, marvelous portrayal of a struggling New Orleans stripper, and Braver, as a privileged teenager visiting from Atlanta, will both make their Broadway debuts in the new play by Lisa D'Amour about the residents of a run-down motel, which also marks the first Broadway production for the playwright.

Other Steppenwolf cast members making the move with director Joe Mantello include K. Todd Freeman, in a scene-stealing performance as self-professed "super tranny" Sissy Na Na, as well as Scott Jaeck, Tim Edward Rhoze and Judith Roberts. New additions for the Broadway production include Ken Marks, Joe Tippett and Tony winner Julie White, taking on the roles played at Steppenwolf by Gordon Joseph Weiss, Stephen Louis Grush and Kate Buddeke, respectively. The remainder of the 16-person ensemble remains to be announced. Airline Highway begins previews April 1 at MTC's Samuel J. Friedman Theatre.
