Elisabeth Moss-Led Heidi Chronicles Announces Broadway Theater and Dates
The new Broadway revival of Wendy Wasserstein's The Heidi Chronicles will play the Music Box Theatre beginning February 23, producers have announced. The official opening date is set for March 19.
Mad Men star Elisabeth Moss returns to Broadway in this new production, which is directed by Tony winner Pam MacKinnon (A Delicate Balance). It also stars Jason Biggs (Orange Is the New Black), Bryce Pinkham (A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder), and Tracee Chimo (Bad Jews).
The Heidi Chronicles follows two decades in the life of Heidi Holland (played by 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.
The creative team will include John Lee Beatty (scenic design) and Jessica Pabst (costume design).
Wasserstein's play premiered in 1988 at Playwrights Horizons and transferred to Broadway in 1989. Moss last appeared on Broadway in Speed-the-Plow.
