Annette Bening & Tracy Letts will return to Broadway to star in All My Sons
The Broadway revival of Arthur Miller's All My Sons begins performances at the American Airlines Theatre on April 4, 2019.
Golden Globe winner and Oscar, Tony & Emmy Award nominee Annette Bening and Tony Award winner Tracy Letts are set to return to the Broadway stage! Roundabout Theatre Company has announced a new Broadway revival of Arthur Miller's All My Sons, directed by Tony Award winner Gregory Mosher, which is scheduled to begin previews at Broadway's American Airlines Theatre on April 4, 2019. An official opening is set for April 22, with a limited engagement running through to June 23, 2019.
All My Sons is widely considered as the play that launched Arthur Miller as the moral voice of the American Theater.
Synopsis: "In the aftermath of WWII, the Keller family struggles to stay intact and to fight for their future when a long-hidden secret threatens to emerge—forcing them to reckon with greed, denial, repentance, and post-war disenchantment across generations."
Annette Bening is a widely-celebrated film star, who hasn't appeared on the Broadway stage since her Tony-nominated Broadway debut in Coastal Disturbances over three decades ago. She played Holly Dancer in the play's premiere from February to August 1987. On the silver screen, she has received four Academy Award nominations for her performances in "The Kids Are All Right" (in 2011), "Being Julia" (in 2005), "American Beauty" (in 2000), and "The Grifters" (in 1991).
