The newest revival of A Doll's House may have begun performances on the main stem, but even Oscar winners have to start somewhere! Step into the rehearsal room with these behind the scenes photos.
Oscar winner Jessica Chastain (The Eyes of Tammy Faye) stars in The Jamie Lloyd Company's revival of Henrik Ibsen's 1879 landmark drama A Doll's House. The limited 16-week engagement will officially open March 9.
Chastain plays Nora Helmer in the Jamie Lloyd-directed production of Ibsen's play—about a housewife who makes the then-earth-shattering decision to leave her husband and family behind. This revival features a new script penned by Amy Herzog.
Chastain will be joined by Tony and Emmy nominee Arian Moayed (Succession on HBO, Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo) as Torvald Helmer, Jesmille Darbouze (Betrayal) as Kristine Linde, Tasha Lawrence (Good People) as Anne-Marie, Michael Patrick Thornton (Macbeth) as Dr. Rank, and Grammy winner Okieriete Onaodowan (Hamillton) as Nils Krogstad. Understudies are Franklin Bongjio, Carey Rebecca Brown, Melisa Soledad Pereyra, and Jose Joaquin Perez.
The creative team will include scenic designer and costume co-designer Soutra Gilmour, costume co-designer Enver Chakartash, lighting designer Jon Clark, sound designers Ben and Max Ringham, composers Ryuichi Sakamoto and Alva Noto, choreographer Jennifer Rias, casting directors Jim Carnahan Casting and Alexandre Bleau, production stage manager Frank Lombardi, stage manager Brandon Allmon-Jackson, general manager 101 Productions, associate director Jonathan Glew, associate scenic designers Michael Carnahan and Wilson Chin, associate costume designer Ricky Lurie, associate lighting designer Domino Mannheim, and associate sound designer Chris Cronin.
A Doll's House was last revived on Broadway in 1997 co-starring Janet McTeer and Owen Teale, who both won Tony Awards for their performances. The production also earned Tonys for Best Revival of a Play and Best Direction of a Play (Anthony Page).
The Jamie Lloyd Company production of A Doll’s House will be produced on Broadway by Ambassador Theatre Group, Gavin Kalin Productions, and Wessex Grove.
