The Broadway premiere of Will Eno's The Realistic Joneses, starring Golden Globe winner Michael C. Hall, Emmy winner Toni Collette, Oscar winner Marisa Tomei and Tony and Pulitzer Prize winner Tracy Letts, will begin previews on March 13 at Broadway's Lyceum Theatre. Directed by Sam Gold, the play's official opening night is set for April 6. The Lyceum Theatre is currently home to A Night With Janis Joplin, which will play its final Broadway performance on February 16 before moving to a new NYC venue sometime in March.
In The Realistic Joneses, we meet Bob (Letts) and Jennifer (Collette) and their new neighbors, John (Hall) and Pony (Tomei), two suburban couples who have even more in common than their identical homes and their shared last names. As their relationships begin to irrevocably intertwine, the Joneses must decide between their idyllic fantasies and their imperfect realities.
The Realistic Joneses originally premiered at Yale Repertory Theatre in New Haven, CT, in April 2012, starring Letts, Parker Posey, Glenn Fitzgerald and Johanna Day.
