The Broadway premiere of Matthew Lopez's The Inheritance, directed by Stephen Daldry, will play its final performance at the Ethel Barrymore Theater March 15. The two-part epic, which opened last fall, will have played 46 previews (28 of The Inheritance Part 1 and 18 of The Inheritance Part 2) and 138 performances (86 of The Inheritance Part 1 and 52 of The Inheritance Part 2) at the time of closing.
A re-imagining of E.M. Forster's Howards End in present-day New York City, The Inheritance follows a cross-generational group of men as they deal with the aftermath of the AIDS crisis and what it means to be gay in contemporary America.
The Broadway cast features Jordan Barbour, Ryan M. Buggle, Jonathan Burke, Andrew Burnap, Darryl Gene Daughtry Jr., Dylan Frederick, Tony Goldwyn, Kyle Harris, Paul Hilton, Samuel H. Levine, Carson McCalley, Tre Ryder, Lois Smith, Kyle Soller, and Arturo Luís Soria.
Goldwyn, who joined the cast January 5, was set to temporarily replace John Benjamin Hickey during a four-month leave of absence while Hickey directs Neil Simon's Plaza Suite on Broadway. Goldwyn will now stay with the show through the remainder of the run.
The company of The Inheritance also includes understudies Mark H. Dold, Kate Goehring, Sam Lilja, Jake Odmark, Matthew Russell, Bradley James Tejeda, and Reggie D. White.
The staging features sets and costumes by Tony winner Bob Crowley, lighting by Jon Clark, sound design by Tony winner Paul Arditti and Christopher Reid, and original music by Paul Englishby.
