Heisenberg on Broadway Tickets
Mary-Louise Parker and Denis Arndt will again star in the Simon Stephens drama Heisenberg when it is transferred to Broadway in the fall. The Manhattan Theater Club produced the play off-Broadway last year at the Studio at Stage II. Performances were sold out. The club will also produce the upcoming Broadway version.
The play tells the story of a woman, Georgie (played by Parker) who sees Alex, a much older man, at a train station in London and kisses his neck. The two quickly forge a romantic relationship. The play considers many alternatives that can shape people’s lives.
“On its surface, it’s a satisfyingly sentimental, life-affirming mating dance between two people who are so utterly dissimilar that of course they are made for each other.” – Ben Brantley, The New York Times
“Helmer Mark Brokaw has directed the production as a delicate tone piece, keeping the stage dark and the movement to a minimum, the better to focus on the actors’ faces.” – Marilyn Stasio, Variety
The original production garnered positive reviews from critics, and its run was extended twice. The Broadway production will make up part of Manhattan Theater Club’s 2016-2017 season.
Parker earned a Tony Award in 2001 for her performance in Roof, another Manhattan Theater Club play that was performed off-Broadway. She has performed in Broadway performances of Reckless and the Snow Geese since then.
Stephens adapted The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, which won a Tony Award for Best Play. He also wrote Harper Regan and Punk Rock. Stephens is also a two-time Olivier Award winner. The creative team includes Mark Wendland, Michael Krass, Donald Holder, and David Van Tieghem.
Heisenberg is scheduled to begin previews at the Samuel J. Friedman Theater in late September and will officially open on October 13. Drama Desk Award winner Mark Brokaw, who directed the play off-Broadway, will also direct the Broadway production.
