Glenn Close will be returning to Broadway this Fall, in a new production of Edward Albee’s “A Delicate Balance” opposite John Lithgow. The cast includes: Lindsay Duncan, Bob Balaban, Clare Higgins, and Martha Plimpton at the Golden Theatre (252 West 45th Street). The production, which will be directed by Pam MacKinnon, begins previews Monday, October 20 and plays an 18-week limited engagement through Sunday, February 22, 2015. Opening night is Thursday, November 20.
This production marks Glenn Close’s return to the New York stage after a twenty-year absence. A three-time Tony Award-winner, hailed by The New York Times as “one of our finest actresses—dazzling and infinitely resourceful,” Miss Close last appeared on Broadway in the musical Sunset Boulevard. Joining Miss Close are two-time Tony Award-winner John Lithgow—who will star this summer in the title role of the Public Theater’s production of King Lear at the Delacorte Theatre—and Lindsay Duncan, who last appeared on Broadway in Private Lives, winning a Tony Award for her performance.
Scenic design will be by Santo Loquasto, costume design by Ann Roth, and lighting design by Brian MacDevitt.
