Michael C. Hall, Toni Collette, Marisa Tomei, and Tracy Letts to Premiere The Realistic Joneses on Broadway
Will Eno's dark comedy will be directed by Sam Gold this spring.
Golden Globe winners Michael C. Hall (Dexter) and Toni Collette (The United States of Tara), along with Academy Award winner Marisa Tomei (My Cousin Vinny) and two-time Tony winner Tracy Letts (Homeland), will star in the Broadway premiere of Will Eno's The Realistic Joneses, the Associated Press reports. Previews for the production, directed by Sam Gold, will begin in February, with an opening night in March at a theater to be announced.
The Realistic Joneses, which had its world premiere at Yale Repertory Theatre in 2012 under Gold's direction, follows two couples who discover that they have more in common than the same last name. Eno is also the author of the plays Middletown, Title and Deed, and the Pulitzer Prize finalist Thom Pain (based on nothing).
Letts reprises the role he played in the Yale Rep production, which also starred Johanna Day, Parker Posey, and Glenn Fitzgerald. Jeffrey Richards, Jerry Frankel, and Jam Theatricals serve as producers of the Broadway run.
