'Of Mice and Men' will end its Broadway run on July 27.

Get ready for George, Lennie and the rest of the gang on the big screen. The Broadway revival of John Steinbeck’s Of Mice and Men, starring James Franco, Chris O’Dowd, Leighton Meester and Jim Norton, will be filmed during its final weeks of performances at the Longacre Theatre for a broadcast by the U.K.'s National Theatre Live. This marks the first Great White Way show to be filmed by the National Theatre program. Screenings dates for the U.S. and Britain will be announced later.

Directed by Anna D. Shapiro, Of Mice and Men tells the story of two migrant workers: George (Franco), a sharp but uneducated, short-tempered man, and Lennie (O'Dowd), a large but simple-minded man. Together they hope to one day acquire their own piece of land. But when Lennie stirs up trouble on the job, George must choose between protecting his friend or continuing to strive for the American dream. This is the first time the play has been on Broadway in 40 years.

Of Mice and Men began performances on Broadway on March 19 and will play its final performance on July 27. Additional cast members include Ron Cephas Jones, Alex Morf, Joel Marsh Garland, James McMenamin, Jim Ortlieb and Jim Parrack.
