Tickets are now available for the Broadway revival of Edward Albee’s A Delicate Balance, starring Glenn Close, John Lithgow, Martha Plimpton and Lindsay Duncan. The play, directed by Pam MacKinnon, will begin performances on October 20 at the Golden Theatre. Opening night is set for November 20.
A Delicate Balance follows Agnes (Close) and Tobias (Lithgow), a long-married couple who must maintain their equilibrium as over the course of a weekend they welcome home their 36-year-old daughter (Plimpton) following the collapse of her fourth marriage. They must also give shelter to their friends, all the while tolerating Agnes’ alcoholic sister Claire (Duncan). Albee’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play was first seen on the Great White Way in 1966 and was later revived by Lincoln Center in 1996, starring Elaine Stritch.
A Delicate Balance will also feature Clare Higgins and Bob Balaban and play a limited 18-week engagement.
