Alumnus Breaks into Broadway

Brian Miskell ’06 performed on Broadway, Sunday, January 6 in Kenneth Lonergan's Pulitzer-nominated work, The Waverly Gallery at the John Golden Theatre, 252 West 45th Street. Brian has been the understudy for Lucas Hedges in the role of Daniel Reed, the grandson who watches his grandmother, played by Elaine May, slowly die from Alzheimer's disease. The play also features Michael Cera and Joan Allen.

The Waverly Gallery explores May’s fight to retain her independence and the subsequent effect of her decline on her family, especially her grandson. More than a memory play, The Waverly Gallery captures the humor and strength of a family in the face of crisis.

After Brian’s performance, a friend of his wrote on Facebook page, “There are days you don't forget. The day Brian Miskell goes on to lead The Waverly Gallery on Broadway, as though he's always been there, is one of them.”
