The production, which will run through March 21, stars Martin Sheen, Frances Conroy, and Brian Geraghty is directed by Neil Pepe.

Sheen's sons, actors Charlie Sheen and Emilio Estevez, were on hand for the opening. Oscar winner Patricia Neal, who also appeared in the film, was in attendance at the opening as well.

Many other celebrities were on hand for the opening, including Felicity Huffman, Ted Danson, Mary Steenburgen, David Mamet, Rebecca Pidgeon, Harry Groener, Buck Henry, Chris Messina, Clark Gregg, Jennifer Grey, and Sharon Lawrence.
