Linda Vista Tickets
Wheeler has officially reached middle age. With 50 years, a divorce, and a lacklustre job to his name, things have to change. He moves out of his ex-wife’s garage into a place of his own, ready to embrace a new start… but things aren’t that simple. As he navigates a mid-life crisis, a strange new dating scene, and keeping up with old friends, Wheeler faces one hell of a challenge: to square the man he is with the one he wants to become.
Casting for Linda Vista on Broadway includes Ian Barford as Wheeler. A long-time collaborator of Tracy Letts’, he originated the roles of Little Charles in August: Osage County and Ray in Mary Page Marlowe. On Broadway, he is known for The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime.
Barford is joined by Sally Murphy (August: Osage County, Caroline Neff (The Flick), Chantal Thuy (The Seagull) and Jim True-Frost (HBO’s The Wire).
Playwright Letts is best known for the multi-award-winning August: Osage County, which was adapted into a movie starring Meryl Streep and Ewan McGregor. As an actor, he won a Tony Award for Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? in 2013.
His latest work is directed by Dexter Bullard, with scenic design by Tony Award winner Todd Rosenthal (The Motherf**ker With the Hat), costume design by Lura Bauer and lighting by Marcus Doshi.
Combining playwright Letts’ keen eye for interpersonal relationships and points of transition with a stellar cast, Linda Vista at the Hayes Theater begins previews on September 19 2019, with opening night set for October 10.
