Jesse Williams, Patrick J. Adams & Jesse Tyler Ferguson Team Up for 'Take Me Out' Preview!

Patrick J. Adams, Jesse Williams and Jesse Tyler Ferguson flash a smile together while attending their photo call and press conference for Take Me Out at The Baseball Center on Wednesday (March 11) in New York City.

The stars were joined at the event by the rest of their cast mates Julian Cihi, Hiram Delgado, Brandon J. Dirden, Carl Lundstedt, Ken Marks, Michael Oberholtzer, Eduardo Ramos and Tyler Lansing Weaks.

When Darren Lemming (Williams), the star center fielder for the Empires, comes out of the closet, the reception off the field reveals a barrage of long-held unspoken prejudices. Facing some hostile teammates and fraught friendships, Darren is forced to contend with the challenges of being a gay person of color within the confines of a classic American institution. As the Empires struggle to rally toward a championship season, the players and their fans begin to question tradition, their loyalties, and the price of victory.

Second Stage Theater’s Broadway revival of the Tony-winning drama Take Me Out, directed by Scott Ellis, will begin previews April 2 at the Helen Hayes Theater. Opening night is scheduled for April 23!
