The Faces of ‘Golden Boy’

Nineteen actors will take their bows when “Golden Boy,” Lincoln Center Theater’s revival of Clifford Odets’s 1937 play, opens Thursday on Broadway at the Belasco Theater. The play is about a working-class kid, Joe Bonaparte, torn between the violin and the boxing ring.

The New York Times asked Daniel Swee, Lincoln Center Theater’s casting director, to describe what he sees (and hears) in several of the actors in the production.

Yvonne Strahovski

(Lorna Moon, Tom’s mistress, who falls in love with Joe)

“She’s able to be tough and heart-breakingly vulnerable all at the same time.”
