Lincon Center’s ‘Oslo’ Moving to Broadway in Spring

Lincoln Center Theater’s “Oslo,” a drama written by J.T. Rogers about the behind-the-scenes role of a Norwegian couple in organizing the talks between Israelis and Palestinians that led to the Oslo accords, will receive a Broadway transfer next year. It won’t have far to go; currently running through August 28th at Lincoln Center’s Mitzi E. Newhouse Theater, which seats 288, next spring the show will move to the Vivan Beaumont Theater in the same complex. The Beaumont, while far from Times Square, clocks in at 1,060 seats, a size that warrants it recognition as a Broadway theater.

“Oslo,” which currently stars Jennifer Ehle and Jefferson Mays, received broad critical acclaim. Writing for the Forward, Anna Katsnelson expressed a more measured opinion; the play, she wrote, “struggles to convey larger moral implications.” Read more of her review here.
