Anna Christie May Return to Main Stem
Broadway may again see a revival of Eugene O'Neill's classic, Pulitzer Prize winning 1922 work Anna Christie. The Donmar Warehouse is currently producing a production in London which stars Jude Law as Mat Burke and Ruth Wilson as the titular Anna. It would be this production that would transfer to Broadway if lead producer Arielle Tepper Madover can raise the funds to bring the show stateside. Anna Christie has not been seen on Broadway since a 1993 production starring Liam Neeson and Natasha Richardson during which Neeson began to court his eventual bride. Ann Meara and Rip Torn also starred in the 1993 production.
