Michael Cera, Kieran Culkin, and Tavi Gevinson will be making their Broadway debuts later this year in Kenneth Lonergan's 1996 play This Is Our Youth, the Chicago Tribune reports. The production will open at Chicago's Steppenwolf Upstairs Theater in June and move to New York in August. The show, set in 1982, follows three characters over the course of two nights: Cera will play Warren, the maladjusted 19-year-old who just stole $15,000 from his lingerie-magnate father; Culkin will play Dennis, the small-time drug dealer; and Gevinson, in her first stage role, will play Jessica, an antsy fashion student. Cera and Culkin were in an Australian production of the show in 2012, and Gevinson played an antsy high-school student in Enough Said, so everyone seems to be on familiar footing. Watch out, Regan-era hopelessness!
