Family dramas are a Broadway staple: Leopoldstadt, Death of a Salesman, and The Piano Lesson are just a few from this theatre season alone. So are biographical accounts, from Walking With Ghosts to A Beautiful Noise.

Pictures from Home on Broadway Starring Nathan Lane Information
Nathan Lane, Danny Burstein, and Zoë Wanamaker star in Pictures From Home, a new Broadway play by Sharr White. Get Pictures From Home tickets on New York Theatre Guide.
The Pictures From Home play is based on an acclaimed 1992 memoir of the same name by Larry Sultan. That memoir immortalizes his parents and their family home, largely in portraits, but also in anecdotes and reflections. Sultan wanted to honor and preserve his parents with his work, but also expose how their seemingly picture-perfect appearances clashed with the harsher realities they actually lived through. Pictures From Home tells this story, of Sultan discovering his family secrets as he interviews and photographs his parents in one of his most unique projects.
White uses some text of from Sultan's book in Pictures From Home on Broadway, as well as information from interviews with Sultan's widow. (Sultan died in 2009.) However, most of the text is fully original.
Pictures From Home in New York is the first full-fledged production of the play; it received readings in New York, Cape Cod, and Houston. The show marks White's third Broadway play, following The Other Place and The Snow Geese, both of which premiered in 2013.
Playing Sultan is Danny Burstein, a 2020 Tony Award winner for playing Harold Zidler in Moulin Rouge! The Musical. He's been nominated for an additional six Tonys for roles in Follies, South Pacific, Cabaret, Fiddler on the Roof, and more. He also appeared in White's The Snow Geese on Broadway.
