Laurie Metcalf, Chris Cooper, and A Doll's House, Part 2 Stars Toast Tony Nods
The Tony-nominated cast and creative team of A Doll's House, Part 2 celebrated their nominations at the John Golden Theatre on May 2. The work is written by Lucas Hnath, who receives a nod for his Broadway playwriting debut.
The cast features 2017 Tony nominees Laurie Metcalf, Chris Cooper, Jayne Houdyshell (The Humans), and Condola Rashad.
Directed by Tony winner Sam Gold, A Doll's House, Part 2 is described as follows: "In the final scene of Ibsen's 1879 groundbreaking masterwork, Nora Helmer makes the shocking decision to leave her husband and children, and begin a life on her own. This climactic event — when Nora slams the door on everything in her life — instantly propelled world drama into the modern age. In A Doll's House, Part 2, many years have passed since Nora's exit. Now, there's a knock on that same door. Nora has returned. But why? And what will it mean for those she left behind?"
