THIS IS OUR YOUTH is the first show of the new Fall season on Broadway.  Performances begin August 18 at the historic Cort Theatre, 138 West 48th Street. The Shubert brothers acquired this now-landmarked theatre in 1927.

 

Show Summary:

Set in New York in 1982, This is Our Youth follows forty-eight hours in the lives of three very lost young souls: Warren (Michael Cera), a dejected nineteen year old who has just stolen $15,000 from his abusive, tycoon father; Dennis (Kieran Culkin), his charismatic drug-dealing friend who helps Warren put the stolen money to good use; and Jessica (Tavi Gevinson), the anxiously insightful young woman who Warren yearns for. Funny, painful and compassionate, This is Our Youth is a living snapshot of the moment when many young people go out into the world on their own, armed only with the ideas and techniques they developed as teenagers – far more sophisticated than their parents realize, and far less effectual than they themselves can possibly imagine.
