A Delicate Balance to Return to Broadway

Edward Albee's play A Delicate Balance, which won the 1967 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, has been announced as Tony-winning director Pam McKinnon's next Broadway-bound project.  The show will star Tony-winners john Lithgow, Glenn Close, and Lindsay Duncan, along with Tony-nominee Martha Plimpton, Bob Balaban, and Olivier winner Clare Higgins.  The show will play an 18-week run at the Golden Theatre starting in October, with a November 20th opening.

The show follows a long-married couple, Tobias and Agnes (Lithgow and Close), who have a whirlwind of a weekend when their 36-year old daughter (Plimpton) comes home after her fourth divorce while they nurse (or tolerate) Agnes' alcoholic sister (Duncan), and shelter their friends (Balaban and Higgins).
