A Doll's House, Starring Jessica Chastain, Announces Full Broadway Cast
Tony nominee Arian Moayed will star as Torvald Helmer opposite the previously announced Jessica Chastain in the forthcoming Broadway production of Henrik Ibsen's A Doll's House, which is set to begin previews at the Hudson Theatre on February 13 ahead of a March 9 opening night. Tickets for the limited engagement are on sale through June 4.
Amy Herzog (Mary Jane) has penned a new English-language version of the 1879 drama about desperate housewife Nora Helmer (Chastain), who works very hard to maintain the illusion of domestic bliss for her husband (Moayed) — until she doesn't. A press release claims, "Herzog will make freshly relevant a story that shocked audiences and brought forth a new era of theater."
Moayed, who was last seen on Broadway in The Humans, will be joined by Jesmille Darbouze as Kristine Linde, Tasha Lawrence as Anne-Marie, Michael Patrick Thornton as Dr. Rank, and Grammy Award winner Okieriete Onaodowan (Hamilton) as Nils Krogstad. Franklin Bongjio, Carey Rebecca Brown, Melisa Soledad Pereyra, and Jose Joaquin Perez will serve as understudies.
Jamie Lloyd, who helmed last season's sexy Cyrano at BAM, directs the production. The design team includes Soutra Gilmour (scenic design and costume co-design), Enver Chakartash (costume co-design), Jon Clark (lighting design), and Ben & Max Ringham (sound design). Original music is by Ryuichi Sakamoto and Alva Noto, with choreography by Jennifer Rias.
