About This Show

Tony Award winner Mary-Louise Parker stars in a new Broadway production of Hedda Gabler, by Henrik Ibsen in a new adaptation by Christopher Shinn. Ian Rickson directs.

Ibsen’s great social drama of a caged woman in the late nineteenth century explores her tormented desire for escape and her yearning for individual and spiritual freedom.

In Hedda Gabler, the newly-wed Hedda Tesman finds herself bored with married life to her scholar husband, George Tesman. As the daughter of General Gabler, she had grown accustomed to the freedom and exciting social world of her father’s home. When her rival, Mrs. Elvsted, reenters her life with Hedda’s former lover, Eilert Lovberg in tow, Hedda sets out on a shocking path of destruction that affects the lives of everyone around her.

The cast also includes Tony Award winner Michael Cerveris as Jorgen Tesman, Paul Sparks as Ejlert Lovborg, Peter Stormare as Judge Brack, Lois Markle as Berte, Ana Reeder as Thea Elvsted, and Helen Carey as Juliane Tesman.
