Matthew Lopez's Olivier Award-winning two-part drama The Inheritance will make its Broadway debut this fall at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre. Previews begin Friday, September 27, with opening night set for Sunday, November 17.

The Inheritance had its world premiere at London's Young Vic Theatre in the spring of 2018, before transferring to London's West End later that year. The Broadway production will feature the U.K. creative team, made up of director Stephen Daldry, scenic and costume designer Bob Crowley, lighting designer Jon Clark, sound designer Paul Arditti, and composer Paul Englishby. Casting for the Broadway production will be announced in the coming weeks.

Reimagining E.M. Forster's Howards End in 21st century New York City, The Inheritance follows the lives of three generations of gay men and asks how much we owe to those who lived and loved before us, and what roles we must play for future generations.

The West End company was made up of Hugo Bolton, Robert Boulter, Andrew Burnap, Hubert Burton, John Benjamin Hickey, Paul Hilton, Samuel H. Levine, Syrus Lowe, Michael Marcus, Jack Riddiford, Kyle Soller, Michael Walters, and Vanessa Redgrave.
