Official Broadway production photos released for Second Stage Theater's Linda Vista
Tracy Letts' dark comedy Linda Vista is set for an official opening at the Hayes Theater on October 10, 2019.
Ahead of tomorrow's official opening at The Hayes Theater on Broadway, official production photography has now been released for the New York premiere of Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winner Tracy Letts' dark comedy Linda Vista.
Presented by Second Stage Theater in association with Center Theatre Group, the cast of this Steppenwolf Theatre production includes Ian Barford (as Wheeler), Sally Murphy (as Margaret), Caroline Neff (as Anita), Chantal Thuy (as Minnie), Jim True-Frost (as Paul), Cora Vander Broek (as Jules), and Troy West (as Michael). Mr. Barford, Ms. Murphy, Mr. True-Frost, and Mr. West all previously collaborated with Tracy Letts' for his Broadway masterpiece August: Osage County.
Linda Vista began preview performances at The Hayes Theater on September 19, 2019. An official opening is scheduled for October 10, with the limited engagement running through November 10, 2019.
Synopsis: "Linda Vista takes a brutally comedic look at Wheeler, a 50-year-old divorcee in the throes of a mid-life spiral. Just out of his ex-wife’s garage and into a place of his own, Wheeler starts on a path toward self-discovery — navigating blind dates, old friends, and new love. Full of opinions, yet short on self-examination, Wheeler must reconcile the man he has become with the man he wants to be."
Directed by Dexter Bullard, the creative team behind Linda Vista features scenic design by Todd Rosenthal, costume design by Laura Bauer, lighting design by Marcus Doshi, sound design by Richard Woodbury.
This production originally staged its world premiere at Steppenwolf Theatre in Chicago in 2017. In addition, it celebrated its west coast premiere at the Mark Taper Forum in Los Angeles in January, 2019.
Linda Vista Tickets are available now for performances through November 10, 2019.
