Tickets are now available for Eric Coble's The Velocity of Autumn, starring Oscar winner Estelle Parsons and Tony winner Stephen Spinella. The explosive family comedy will begin performances April 1 at Broadway's Booth Theatre.
Directed by Molly Smith, The Velocity of Autumn tells the story of Alexandra (Parsons), a 79-year-old artist in a showdown with her family over where she’ll spend her remaining years. Alexandra has barricaded herself in her Brooklyn Brownstone with enough Molotov cocktails to take out the block, but when her estranged son Chris (Spinella) crawls through her second-floor window, he becomes the family’s unlikely mediator.
The Velocity of Autumn premiered at Boise Contemporary Theatre in Idaho in 2011. After a sold-out run at Washington D.C.’s Arena Stage this past September, the production is slated to open on the Great White Way on April 21.
