Second Stage Theater has announced complete casting for the Broadway production of Tracy Letts's Linda Vista. Directed by Dexter Bullard, the work will play a strictly limited eight-week engagement, beginning previews September 19 at the Hayes Theater and officially opening on October 10.

The production will feature Ian Barford (Wheeler), Sally Murphy (Margaret), Caroline Neff (Anita), Chantal Thuy (Minnie), Jim True-Frost (Paul), Cora Bander Broek (Jules), and Troy West (Michael).

The full creative team includes scenic design by Todd Rosenthal, costume design by Laura Bauer, lighting design by Marcus Doshi, and sound design by Richard Woodbury.

Linda Vista is described as "a brutally comedic look at Wheeler, a 50-year-old divorcee in the throes of a mid-life spiral. Just out of his ex-wife's garage and into a place of his own, Wheeler starts on a path toward self-discovery — navigating blind dates, old friends, and new love. Full of opinions, yet short on self-examination, Wheeler must reconcile the man he has become with the man he wants to be."

This Steppenwolf Theatre production is presented in association with Center Theatre Group. Linda Vista received its West Coast premiere at Center Theatre Group's Mark Taper Forum in Los Angeles, January 2019.
