The cast includes Laura Donnelly and Cush Jumbo. Ian Rickson, a longtime collaborator with the writer, directs. Butterworth, author of the acclaimed Mark Rylance vehicle Jerusalem, sets The River in a remote cabin on a cliff somewhere. The play was unveiled in 2012 at London’s Royal Court Theatre and comes to New York under the wing of Sonia Friedman Productions. Jackman‘s most recent Broadway show was his sold-out Hugh Jackman — Back On Broadway in 2011.
