David Furr In Lanford Wilson's "Burn This" On Broadway

Apr 18, 2019

The first Broadway revival of Pulitzer Prize winner Lanford Wilson’s “Burn This” opened at The Hudson Theatre this past Tuesday evening.

When a mysterious death brings together two unlikely strangers, their explosive connection sparks a chemistry too fiery to ignore. "Burn This," directed by Tony Award winner Michael Mayer, is a smoldering story of love and raw attraction by one of the most vital playwrights of the modern era. The steamy new revival stars Keri Russell as Anna, Adam Driver as Pale, Brandon Uranowitz as Larry, and our guest, David Furr as Burton.

Furr earned a Tony nomination for his work as Garry in Roundabout Theatre Company’s hilarious 2016 revival of “Noises Off” at the American Airlines Theatre where, in 2011, Furr played John “Jack” Worthing in Roundabout’s tremendous production of “The Importance of Being Earnest” co-starring Brian Bedford and Santino Fontana.

His other Broadway credits include “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?,” “Accent on Youth,” “Cymbeline,” “The Rivals,” and “King Lear.” Furr’s film credits include “13 Hours,” “Evening,” “The Sounding,” and the upcoming “The Highwaymen.” His recurring television appearances include “Bull,” “The Man in the High Castle,” “Mr. Mercedes,” “Dynasty,” “Odd Mom Out,” “TURN: Washington’s Spies,” “Iron First,” “Madam Secretary,” “The Following,” and “The Americans.”
