Elisabeth Moss and Jason Biggs to Lead Broadway Revival of The Heidi Chronicles
Wendy Wasserstein's Pulitzer Prize-winning drama will be directed by Pam MacKinnon.
Mad Men star Elisabeth Moss will return to Broadway this February in a revival of Wendy Wasserstein's landmark Pulitzer- and Tony-winning play The Heidi Chronicles.
Produced by Jeffrey Richards, Jerry Frankel, Susan Gallin, and Mary Lu Roffe, the production will also star Jason Biggs (Orange Is the New Black), Bryce Pinkham (A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder), and Tracee Chimo (Bad Jews). Tony winner Pam MacKinnon directs the revival, which will open in early March at a theater to be announced.
The Heidi Chronicles follows two decades in the life of Heidi Holland (Moss), from high school in the 1960s to her career as an art historian. It explores the changing roles of women through the years. Biggs will play Scoop Rosenbaum, a magazine editor with a long, flirtatious relationship with Heidi. Pinkham will play Heidi's best friend, gay pediatrician Peter Patrone. Chimo takes on multiple supporting roles.
Wasserstein's play premiered in 1988 at Playwrights Horizons, transferring to Broadway in 1989. Moss last appeared on Broadway in Speed-the-Plow.
