The Broadway production of Tracy Letts' Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning play, August: Osage County, currently at the Music Box Theatre, will close on June 28. At that time, it will have played 18 previews and 648 regular performances.

The play, directed by Anna D. Shapiro, revolves around the Weston clan in rural Oklahoma, who reunite after the disappearance of patriarch. It currently stars Tony winners Phylicia Rashad, John Cullum, Elizabeth Ashley, and Frank Wood, with Tony nominee Amy Morton, Anne Berkowitz, Guy Boyd, Kimberly Guerrero, Brian Kerwin, Michael Milligan, Sally Murphy, Mariann Mayberry, and Troy West. The design team included Todd Rosenthal (sets), Ana Kuzmanic (costumes), Ann Wrightson (lights), Richard Woodbury (sound), and David Singer (original music).

As previously announced, August: Osage County will begin its National Tour, starring Academy award winner Estelle Parsons, at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts on July 24.
