This summer, Park Avenue Armory will stage the North American premiere of Robert Icke’s multi-award-winning West End hit, The Doctor. The production, which will run for 12 weeks this summer June 12 thru August 19, in the Armory’s Wade Thompson Drill Hall, marks acclaimed theater and film actor Juliet Stevenson’s first appearance on the New York stage in 20 years in what she calls the “role of a lifetime.” Stevenson leads the cast, reprising her award-winning performance as Dr. Ruth Wolff, a medical leader whose decision in the field ignites public debate that grips a divided nation. Based on Arthur Schnitzler’s Professor Bernhardi, written in 1912, Icke breathes fresh life into what was revolutionary and controversial in its time for addressing pressing topics including antisemitism and abortion. Now on stage in New York, Icke reimagines the story and its moral arguments in a contemporary context, challenging the audience to question their presumptions of faith, race, gender, scientific reason—and the characters themselves.
