About this show

Tony Award winner Ian McKellen and Tony Award nominee Helen Mirren star in a limited-engagement Broadway run of Dance of Death, a new adaptation of August Strindberg's play by Richard Greenberg. Edgar, a military captain, and his wife, Alice, a former actress, are preparing to celebrate their silver anniversary...25 years of living together in a place they have nicknamed "Little Hell."Inevitably bound together yet yearning to escape, the two spend their empty days by matching wits, their verbal jousts spinning a web of twisted emotion. A visitor from their past suddenly reenters their lives...will he offer them freedom from their lives or fall victim to their wicked games?
