Official Broadway production photos released for The Minutes, starring Tracy Letts & Armie Hammer
The Broadway premiere of The Minutes is scheduled for an official opening at the Cort Theatre on March 15, 2020.
The new shots feature cast members of this Steppenwolf Theatre production, including playwright Tracy Letts himself, alongside Ian Barford, Tony Award winner Blair Brown, Cliff Chamberlain, Tony Award nominee K. Todd Freeman, Golden Globe nominee Armie Hammer, Danny McCarthy, Tony Award winner Jessie Mueller, Sally Murphy, Tony Award nominee Austin Pendleton, and Jeff Still.
The Minutes began previews at the Cort Theatre on February 25, 2020, and is scheduled for an official opening on March 15 and a limited engagement through June 14, 2020.
Synopsis: "The Minutes takes a look at the inner-workings of a city council meeting in the small town of Big Cherry—and the hypocrisy, greed, and ambition that follow. This powerful, resonant, and funny portrayal of democracy in action proves that everything you know can change—it’s just a matter of minutes. After all, the smallest towns keep the biggest secrets."
The production, which debuted at Steppenwolf Theatre in Chicago in 2017 and became a Pulitzer Prize finalist, also reunites Letts with Tony Award-winning director Anna D. Shapiro for the first time on Broadway since 2007's August: Osage County.
The creative team for the Broadway premiere features scenic design by David Zinn, costume design by Ana Kuzmanic, lighting design by Brian MacDevitt, sound design and original music by André Pluess, hair & wig design by Tom Watson, and dramaturgy by Edward Sobel.
The Minutes is produced on Broadway by Jeffrey Richards, Rebecca Gold, Carl Moellenberg, Spencer Ross, Steve Traxler and Jacob Soroken Porter.
The Minutes Tickets are available now for performances through June 14, 2020.
