Hiram Delgado is getting in the game…
The Latino actor will star in Broadway’s Take Me Out, which will open on April 22, 2021, with previews beginning March 22.
Delgado will star alongside Patrick J. Adams, Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Jesse Williams in The Second Stage Theater‘s staging of the Richard Greenberg play.
Take Me Outis directed by Scott Ellis.
In addition to Delgado, Adams, Ferguson and Williams, Take Me Out, at the Second Stage’s Hayes Theater, will feature Julian Cihi, Brandon J. Dirden, Carl Lundstedt, Ken Marks, Michael Oberholtzer, Eduardo Ramos and Tyler Lansing Weaks.
Take Me Out, first staged on Broadway in 2003, follows a New York baseball team called the Empires. When Darren Lemming (Williams), the star center fielder, comes out as gay, the reception off the field reveals a barrage of long-held unspoken prejudices. As Second Stage describes it, “Darren is forced to contend with the challenges of being a gay person of color within the confines of a classic American institution. As the Empires struggle to rally toward a championship season, the players and their fans begin to question tradition, their loyalties, and the price of victory.”
The full creative team for Take Me Out includes scenic design by David Rockwell, costume design by Linda Cho, lighting design by Kenneth Posner and sound design by Fitz Patton.
It’s the latest production targeting a Spring opening after being interrupted or postponed this year due to Broadway’s COVID-19 shutdown.
The production had been scheduled to begin previews on April 2, 2020 and officially open on April 23, 2020.
