Three Tall Women on Broadway Tickets

Golden Theatre

Acting legend Glenda Jackson makes her long-awaited return to Broadway in Edward Albee’s Three Tall Women. Considered one of Albee’s most personal works, this emotionally sharp exploration of one woman’s life opens at the Golden Theatre.

Glenda Jackson makes a triumphant return to Broadway in Three Tall Women, starring alongside Laurie Metcalf and Alison Pill. Edward Albee’s masterful play about one woman’s life, loves and regrets was first staged at Vienna’s English Theatre in 1991.

Inspired by playwright Albee’s adoptive mother, Three Tall Women’s titular characters are known only as A, B and C. With ages spanning from 20s to 90s, the trio open the show as an ailing elderly woman, a caregiver and a law associate. Over two acts, their thorny but insightful relationships transform into a profound reflection of a single woman’s choices and mistakes over 70 years.

Glenda Jackson (woman A) returned from time as a British Member of Parliament to play King Lear at London’s Old Vic Theatre in 2016. Not content with conquering Shakespeare’s towering work, she now heads to New York for the first time since 1988’s Macbeth.

An Academy Award winner for A Touch of Class and Women in Love, she is joined on stage by recent Tony Award winner Laurie Metcalf (A Doll’s House, Part 2) as woman B and Alison Pill (The Lieutenant of Inishmore; The Miracle Worker) as woman C.

Three Tall Women receives its Broadway premiere in director Joe Mantello’s production. Mantello is a two-time Tony Award winner for Assassins and Take Me Out, and heads up a creative team including Miriam Buether (scenic design), Ann Roth (costume design) and Paul Gallo (lighting design).

Considered one of Edward Albee’s most personal plays, Three Tall Women at the Golden Theatre is an unmissable opportunity to watch some of theater’s most powerful talents delve into a Pulitzer Prize winning masterpiece of memory and human frailty. It begins previews on March 1 2018, with opening night scheduled for March 29.

Audience Notes:
Three Tall Women is a must-see for those who fondly remember Glenda Jackson’s previous theater engagements – and equally so for those too young to have seen her before. Theatergoers can also count themselves as the first to catch Albee's great play on Broadway; prior to now, it has never been staged on the Great White Way.
