“Disgraced”: Terrific And Turbulent

Ayad Akhtar‘s Pulitzer-Prize-winning play, “Disgraced,” has arrived on Broadway, after an acclaimed production at Lincoln Center Theater. Charles Isherwood of the New York Times says the work is a “terrific, turbulent drama.” Further: “In the years since it was first produced here, the play’s exploration of the conflicts between modern culture and Islamic faith, as embodied by the complicated man at its center — a Pakistani-born, thoroughly assimilated New Yorker — have become ever more pertinent. The rise of the so-called Islamic State, and the news that radicalized Muslims from Europe and the United States have joined the conflict raging in Syria and Iraq, brings an even keener edge to Mr. Akhtar’s engrossing drama.” Gretchen Mol, Karen Pittman, Josh Radnor, and Hari Dhillon make up the cast.
