The Broadway transfer of Heisenberg concludes performances at the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre December 11. Following a sold-out, world-premiere run at Manhattan Theatre Club’s Off-Broadway space last year, Simon Stephens’ acclaimed two-hander transferred to the Broadway stage September 20 with Denis Arndt and Mary-Louise Parker reprising their roles.
The new play, by The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time Tony winner Stephens with direction by Mark Brokaw, sees two beguiling strangers quickly embark on a life-changing journey. The production was extended due to popular demand and critical acclaim, and was recently included in New York Times critic Ben Brantley’s Best Theatre of 2016 list.
