“Daredevil” star Charlie Cox will appear opposite Heather Lind (“Demolition”) in British playwright Nick Payne’s new drama “Incognito,” which will have its American debut this spring at Off Broadway’s Manhattan Theatre Club.
Tony winner Doug Hughes will direct the show, which begins previews on May 3 before an official May 24 premiere. Additional casting will be announced in the coming weeks.
The drama weaves together the story of a pathologist who steals the brain of Albert Einstein, a neuropsychologist embarking on her first romance with another woman, and a seizure patient who forgets everything except for his love for his girlfriend.
The creative team also includes Scott Pask (scenic design), Catherine Zuber (costume design), Ben Stanton (lighting design), David Van Tieghem (original music & sound design), J. David Brimmer (fight director), Peter Pucci (movement direction), and Stephen Gabis (dialect coach).
Cox is best known for playing the blind lawyer-turned-vigilante Matt Murdock in Netflix’s “Daredevil,” which returns for its second season on March 18. His other credits include “Boardwalk Empire,” “The Theory of Everything” and Matthew Vaughn‘s “Stardust.”
Lind, another veteran of “Boardwalk Empire,” stars opposite Jamie Bell in AMC’s “Turn: Washington Spies” and co-stars opposite Jake Gyllenhaal in the upcoming movie “Demolition.” She made her Broadway debut in the Al Pacino-led revival of Shakespeare’s “The Merchant of Venice” in 2010-11.
