As the SAG-AFTRA strike looms over Hollywood many of our favorite A-list stars are setting their eyes on Broadway, including Elle Fanning. The Emmy-nominated actress will make her Broadway debut in Branden Jacobs-Jenkins’ Appropriate alongside Sarah Paulson and Corey Stoll.

Appropriate follows members of the Lafayette family, returning to their home in Arkansas following the death of the family’s patriarch. His eldest daughter Toni (Paulson) and her brother Bo (Stoll) are forced to deal with the ghosts of their past after their estranged brother Franz appears late one night, and mysterious objects are discovered among the clutter.

Directed by Lila Neugebauer, Appropriate will also star Natalie Gold and Alyssa Emily Marvin and additional casting is yet to be announced. Fanning will make her Broadway debut in the role of River, the fiancé of the youngest of the Lafayette siblings.

Fanning’s schedule cleared up after Hulu made a shocking decision to cancel the acclaimed series The Great. She led this satirical period drama as Catherine the Great and received nominations for a Primetime Emmy Award and two Golden Globe Awards for her performance. She also received acclaim for playing Michelle Carter in Hulu’s mini-series The Girl from Plainville alongside Chloë Sevigny and Colton Ryan.
