Oslo, a drama about the long series of efforts to reach an agreement that would bring peace to the Middle East, opened off-Broadway at the Lincoln Center’s Mitzi E. Newhouse Theater, which can seat 288 people, on July 11, 2016. It earned overwhelmingly positive reviews.
New Production Coming to a Broadway Theater
The off-Broadway run has ended, but the play will reopen in March 2017 with the same cast at the Vivian Beaumont Theater, which can seat over 1,000 people, at the Lincoln Center. The larger theater is considered a Broadway playhouse, which means Oslo will be eligible to win Tony Awards in 2017. The Broadway production is scheduled to begin previews on March 23 and to officially open on April 13.
Behind-the-Scenes Story of the Oslo Peace Accords
Oslo is about an unusual back-story surrounding the Oslo peace accords, which were signed in 1993. It describes the role of a Norwegian couple who arranged to get high-ranking officials from Israel and the Palestine Liberation Organization to sit down and talk to each other. The back-channel discussions ultimately resulted in a meeting between Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin and PLO leader Yasir Arafat at the White House and the Oslo peace accords.
Cast and Creative Team
The play was written by J. T. Rogers. Oslo is one of the few plays by living American playwrights currently being performed on Broadway. Most of the plays currently in production are musicals or revivals. Oslo is directed by Bartlett Sher and stars Jennifer Ehle and Jefferson Mays.
