Avett Brothers’ Musical ‘Swept Away’ Sets Broadway Opening Dates

Swept Away, a musical with a score by the Avett Brothers, will come to Broadway’s Longacre Theatre this fall. 

The musical, which follows four survivors of a shipwreck in 1888 trying to stay alive, including a young man and his older brother, the captain and the first mate, will start performances Oct. 29, with an opening night on Nov. 19. The production had previous runs at Berkeley Repertory Theatre and Arena Stage in Washington D.C. 

The musical features a book by John Logan (Red, Moulin Rouge! The Musical), direction by Michael Mayer (Spring Awakening, American Idiot) and choreography by Tony Award nominee David Neumann (Hadestown). Matthew Masten, Sean Hudock and Madison Wells Live are the producers. 

Broadway casting will be announced at a later date. The Avett Brothers initially announced the move to Broadway during a concert at Forest Hills Stadium in Queens. At that time, the band brought out John Gallagher Jr., Stark Sands, Adrian Blake Enscoe and Wayne Duvall, who had been cast members in the previous productions.
