Pulitzer Prize-nominated The Minutes to transfer to Broadway in 2020
Details on a venue, casting and a performance schedule are yet to be announced.
After a world premiere at Steppenwolf Theatre, Tracy Letts’ The Minutes will transfer to Broadway in 2020. Although a year has been set for the production’s opening, details on a venue, the 11 cast members to star in the production and a performance schedule are yet to be announced.
Initial members of a creative team have been announced, as Anna D. Shapiro reunites with Letts to direct the production. The pair will work together on a production for the first time since August: Osage County, which won the 2008 Pulitzer Prize for Drama.
Synopsis: “A town's proud history, the legend of a local hero, the coveted privilege of reserved parking: nothing is sacred during the town council meeting at the heart of Tracy Letts' new play. This razor-sharp comedy turns from hilarious to chilling as petty policy matters give way to the truth boiling just beneath the surface of the town's historical mythology.”
Set in the fictional town of Big Cherry, The Minutes examines small-town politics and the implications on power surrounding individuals, full of back-stabbing, manipulation and mistruths.
