TORONTO — Canadian actor Luke Macfarlane will star in the world premiere of stage drama Reverberation in February.

The 34-year-old Ontario native will play Jonathan, a gay man who has withdrawn from society, in the play by Matthew Lopez.

Reverberation is scheduled to run Feb. 19 to March 15 at Hartford Stage in Connecticut.

The play, directed by Maxwell Williams, also stars Aya Cash and Carl Lundstedt.

Reverberation is a bold and imaginative exploration of love, Eros, and friendship in 2015,” reads a description on the theatre company’s website. “It is Matthew’s most haunting and imginative play. It is also rather frank — about love and sexuality; gay, straight, and in between — in our time.”

Macfarlane, best known for playing Scotty on five seasons of Brothers and Sisters, starred in both the Broadway and touring productions of The Normal Heart and has appeared in plays like The Jazz Age and The Busy World is Hushed.

He recently wrapped production of the new sci-fi series Killjoys in Toronto.
