Mary Rose is a 1920 play by Barrie, the author of Peter Pan. It tells the tale of a young woman who mysteriously disappears and then just as mysteriously returns to her family. The original Broadway production ran four months, and a 1951 revival played two weeks.
Landau has directed many shows for the Vineyard, including Miracle Brothers and Dream True, which she co-authored. Her other New York stage credits include the Broadway revival of Bells Are Ringing and the Off-Broadway production of Floyd Collins, which she co-wrote with Adam Guettel.
Howard will be making her professional theater debut in Mary Rose. A student at NYU, she is the daughter of Oscar-winning director Ron Howard and sister of actress Bryce Dallas Howard.
