Famous as she is for movies (You Can Count on Me, Sully) and television (Ozark, Tales of the City), Laura Linney seems irresistibly drawn to the stage, where each new performance proves a revelation, as did her recent work in The Little Foxes. The Emmy and Golden Globe winner and Tony and Oscar nominee is back at the Friedman Theatre with Manhattan Theatre Club’s presentation of My Name is Lucy Barton, a new solo play adapted by Rona Munro from the best-selling novel by Pulitzer Prize winner Elizabeth Strout. Linney plays Lucy Barton, who awakens after an operation to find her long-estranged mother waiting at her bedside, and must come to terms with her troubled family history. The production previously met with acclaim in London, where Linney’s performancewas hailed as “deeply affecting and heartbreaking” by The Observer. Richard Eyre (Private Lives) directs.

What do you get when you cross flaming youth with fusty history, and the Spice Girls with Masterpiece? Something like Six, the new musical that recasts the variously ill-fated queens of Henry VIII as a sextet of take-no-prisoners pop princesses. The show turns them into 21st-century avatars of girl power, giving them back their heads and their dignity, and backing them with a rocking all-female band, the Ladies in Waiting. Broadway is just one of the many incarnations of Six, which is already a hit in London, and is planning productions and tours in Australia, Canada and the broader UK; its cast album has been a big streaming success. The show was created by Lucy Moss and Toby Marlow, and co-directed by Moss and Jamie Armitage.

In this hands-on seminar designed for early-career directors, actors who are interested in directing, and working directors who are looking to refresh their process, participants will develop their own rigorous approach to effectively analyze scripts and articulating their vision. Using Seamus Heaney's translation of Antigone (The Burial at Thebes) as the source text, the workshop will explore concepts of event, main dramatic question, objectives, obstacles, dramatic structure and defining the world of the play. In the second part of the seminar, participants will put their analysis into action, staging a scene with professional actors to experiment with the impact their choices make in creating clear storytelling.
Moving from analysis to interpretation, directors will practice the elements of a great pitch and have the opportunity to pitch a production and receive individual feedback.
Participants – will have the opportunity to work with the actors during the text analysis workshop and will have the chance to pitch and receive feedback.
Observers – will have the opportunity to observe the participants working with the actors during the text analysis workshop. Observers will not have the opportunity to pitch and receive feedback.

The first Broadway revival of Caroline, or Change has already been given the imprimatur of greatness by London critics, who hailed this new production in its recent West End run.

A seemingly mundane small-town city council meeting turns into a searing indictment of human greed, hypocrisy and venality in Tracy Letts’ new play The Minutes. The ensemble drama, acclaimed in its earlier run at Steppenwolf Theatre in Chicago, reunites Letts with Anna D. Shapiro, director of his Tony- and Pulitzer-winning epic August: Osage County. The cast includes Tony winners Jessie Mueller, Blair Brown and Mr. Letts himself; Tony nominee Austin Pendleton; and movie favorite Armie Hammer (Call Me By Your Name).

"Swinging London" took on a grim new meaning when Martin McDonagh's pitch-dark comedy Hangmen—about professional rivalry among executioners-- played the West End and won the 2016 Olivier Award for best new play. But the success of Hangmen has been anything but grim, and in addition to its acclaimed British engagements, the play was a hit Off Broadway for Atlantic Theater Company in 2018. Now its trajectory continues with a Broadway run. The play is set in 1965 in a Northern England pub run by Harry Wade (Mark Addy), who is also the second-best hangman in the UK. But now hanging has been abolished, so Harry will never be able to outshine his rival, Mooney, the very best hangman in the UK (Dan Stevens of “Downton Abbey”), who turns up in Harry’s pub with an unsettling agenda of his own. McDonagh (The Beauty Queen of Leenane, The Cripple of Inishmaan) has never been more mordantly funny. Matthew Dunster directs.

It’s been 58 years since Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? hit Broadway like a cultural thunderclap. But Edward Albee’s incendiary masterpiece of a marriage drama retains its power to shock and transport audiences. It’s also a daunting mountain to climb for brave and ambitious actors. The latest masters to take on Albee’s iconic couple, George and Martha, are two-time Tony and three-time Emmy winner Laurie Metcalf (Three Tall Women, A Doll’s House Part 2), and movie and stage icon Rupert Everett (The Judas Kiss, Blithe Spirit). They're steered through the play’s rapids and hairpin turns by two-time Tony-winning director Joe Mantello (Three Tall Women, The Boys in the Band). The cast also features Russell Tovey (A View from the Bridge) and recent Olivier Award winner Patsy Ferran in her Broadway debut.
