Prayer for the French Republic on Broadway Background

Prayer for the French Republic premiered at the Manhattan Theatre Club in New York City on January 11, 2022, under the direction of David Cromer.

Show Extended For An Extra Month

The show extended at the Friedman Theatre from its initial closing date of February 12, 2024 to March 3, 2024. This was in part due to strong ticket sales and positive critical reviews.

Discount on Theatre Rental

Another Broadway show is not scheduled to go into that theatre soon after that date, so the landlord gave the producers a discount on the theatre rental.

Next Show At The Theatre

The next show, Mary Jane (with Rachel McAdams) is scheduled to open in previews at the Samuel J Friedman Theatre on April 2, 2024, so it gives Prayer for the French Republic some wiggle room.

What's Prayer for the French Republic Like?

In 1944, a Jewish couple in Paris desperately await news of their missing family. More than 70 years later, the couple's great-grandchildren find themselves facing the same question as their ancestors: "Are we safe?"

The play follows five generations of a French-Jewish family. Prayer for the French Republic is a sweeping look at history, home and the effects of an ancient hatred.

Is Prayer for the French Republic Good for Kids?

The heavy subject matter and references to the holocaust means that this show may only be suitable for children over the age of 16 years
