Jerusalem will open on Broadway on 21 April 2011 at the Music Box Theatre, following previews from 2 April 2011. It will play a limited season until 24 July 2011. Mark Rylance will reprise the role of Rooster, with Mackenzie Crook and most of the original Royal Court cast also transferring.
Jerusalem by Jez Butterworth opened at the downstairs theatre of the Royal Court Theatre in London in 2009. The production starred Mark Rylance as Johnny 'Rooster' Byron and Mackenzie Crook as Ginger. After receiving rave reviews its run was extended. In January 2010 it transferred to the Apollo Theatre.
On St George's Day, the morning of the local county fair (deriving its sense of place and community from the annual carnival week at Pewsey, Wiltshire) Johnny Byron, local waster and modern day Pied Piper, is a wanted man. The council officials want to serve him an eviction notice, his son, Marky wants his dad to take him to the fair, Troy Whitworth wants to give him a serious kicking and a motley crew of mates want his ample supply of drugs and alcohol.
