The Broadway revival of Terrence McNally's Frankie and Johnny in the Clair de Lune opens tonight at the Broadhurst Theatre, but the company celebrated on May 29.

The production stars six-time Tony winner Audra McDonald and Tony and Academy Award nominee Michael Shannon, with direction by Arin Arbus. The two-character play offers a "portrait of a lonely waitress and a short order cook whose first date turns into a one-night stand — and maybe more."


The creative team includes Riccardo Hernández (sets), Emily Rebholz (costumes), Natasha Katz (lighting), Nevin Steinberg (sound), J. Jared Janas (hair, wig, and makeup), and Claire Warden (intimacy and fight director).

Frankie and Johnny in the Clair de Lune has a strictly limited 16-week engagement concluding on Sunday, August 25.
