& Jeremy Irons
Michael Jacobs' forthcoming Broadway play
Impressionism has booked the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre, according to The New York Times. As previously announced, Jeremy Irons and Joan Allen will star in the production, which begins previews on February 28, with an opening date set for March 12, directed by Jack O'Brien. Additional casting and the creative team members will be announced at a later date.
The story of a world-traveling photojournalist and a New York gallery owner who help repair each others' broken lives, Impressionism marks Allen's first appearance on a Broadway stage since her Tony Award-nominated performance in 1989's The Heidi Chronicles. Irons last appeared on Broadway in Tom Stoppard's The Real Thing in 1984, a performance that earned him a Best Actor Tony.
Jacobs wrote the Broadway comedy Cheaters, which ran for one month at the Biltmore Theatre in 1978. In addition to writing for 15 TV series, he produced the movie Quiz Show, which was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Picture in 1994.
Produced by Ostar Productions, Impressionism will arrive at the Schoenfeld Theatre after the revival of Arthur Miller’s All My Sons ends its limited engagement on January 11.
