Tony Award winner Anna D. Shapiro is still scheduled to direct the show, which was announced as beginning previews November 5 with an opening on November 14. The show's pre-Broadway run at Boston's Huntington Theatre was cancelled earlier this year.
The play portrays the colorful, freethinking Sycamore family and the mayhem that ensues when their daughter's fiancé brings his conservative, straight-laced parents to the Sycamore residence for dinner on the wrong night.
Shapiro won the Tony, Drama Desk, and Outer Critics Circle Award for August: Osage County, having directed the play's premiere at Chicago's Steppenwolf Theatre. Her numerous other credits include Iron at Manhattan Theatre Club, Jon Robin Baitz's A Fair Country at the Huntington Theatre Company and Bruce Norris' The Pain and the Itch at Steppenwolf.
