Broadway Estate Planning

Broadway Estate Planning

Ever since Horton Foote's acclaimed Dividing The Estate enjoyed its Gotham premiere last fall at Off-Broadway's Primary Stages, a Broadway transfer has been rumored. Now it's a reality.

According to Variety, the play will be mounted by Lincoln Center Theatre beginning in October at a Shubert Theatre to be announced.

Gordon Cox writes that Michael Wilson (Old Acquaintance) will once again direct much of the original cast, including Elizabeth Ashley, Hallie Foote (the playwright's daughter), Arthur French, Penny Fuller and Gerald McRaney. Wilson worked with Ashley during her last Main Stem appearance in Enchanted April five years ago.

And speaking of Horton Foote -- who just celebrated his 92nd birthday last Friday -- Chicago's Goodman Theatre is currently in the midst of its timely celebration of the great playwright with its own Horton Foote Festival. Its centerpiece production is another critical darling from Off-Broadway, The Trip To Bountiful. Look for an SOB Review of that show in the days to come.
