Tom Hewitt will take on the role of Pontius Pilate, with Bruce Dow as King Herod, Marcus Nance as Caiaphas and Aaron Walpole as Annas.

This production began life at the Stratford Shakespeare Festival in Canada last year and then moved to the La Jolla Playhouse in California, where it is finishing its run. The production is directed by Tony-winner Des McAnuff. Previews will start on March 1st in anticipation of a March 22nd opening at the Neil Simon Theatre.
