Will Eno play to hit Broadway with some big stars

October 17, 2013

NEW YORK (AP) — A play about four people who share the same last name is coming to Broadway with some awfully big names attached.

Michael C. Hall, Toni Collette, Marisa Tomei and Tracy Letts are set to star in Will Eno‘s play “The Realistic Joneses” early next year. Previews are set to begin in February and an opening scheduled at a theater to be announced for late March.

In the play, two couples both with the surname Jones discover they have more in common than just their names. Eno, who was a Pulitzer Prize finalist for his one-man show “Thom Pain (based on nothing),” also wrote “Middletown,” ”Title and Deed” and “Oh, the Humanity and other exclamations,” a collection of five short plays.

Collette has a Golden Globe and Emmy Award for “United States of Tara,” Hall earned a Golden Globe with “Dexter,” Tomei won an Oscar with “My Cousin Vinny” and Letts has won Tony Awards for acting in “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” and for writing “August: Osage County.”

“The Realistic Joneses” first ran at the Yale Repertory Theatre in 2012 with Letts aboard. Sam Gold also returns to direct the Broadway version. Producers include Jeffrey Richards, Jerry Frankel, Jam Theatricals, Stacey Mindich and Susan Gallin and Mary Lu Roffe.
