    Laurie Metcalf and Chris Cooper will star in "A Doll's House, Part 2"

    In the final scene of Henrik Isben's revolutionary 1879 play "A Doll's House," Nora Helmer walks out on her husband and children in an effort to discover who she is as a woman outside of the 19th-century's traditional marriage norms.

    Now, 138 years after Nora closed that door, a new play is revealing what happened next in her story. 

    The tale will be told in Luca Hnath's "A Doll's House, Part 2" -- which will have a 16-week limited engagement at Broadway's Golden Theatre beginning April 1, 2017. Opening night is set for April 27.

    Leading the production is Emmy winner Laurie Metcalf ("Mystery," TV's "Roseanne"). She'll star as Nora, alongside Oscar winner Chris Cooper ("American Beauty"), Tony winner Jayne Houdyshell ("The Humans") and two-time Tony nominee Condola Rashad ("Romeo and Juliet").

    It'll be Cooper's first Broadway role in nearly 40 years. He last appeared on New York's biggest stage in 1980's "Of the Fields, Lately."

    Directed by Sam Gold ("Fun Home"), the play has Nora returning home, years after leaving it behind. "But why," the show's description reads. "And what will it mean for those she left behind?"

    Ticketing information has not yet been announced.
