Nathan Lane (TV’s “American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson) and John Slattery (TV’s “Mad Men”) will return to Broadway this fall in a revival of Ben Hecht and Charles MacArthur’s 1928 play “The Front Page."
The drama, about the inner workings of a Chicago newspaper, will come with a star-studded ensemble, including John Goodman (the film “10 Cloverfield Lane”), Rosemary Harris (“The Road to Mecca”), Jefferson Mays (“A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder”) and Sherie Rene Scott (“Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown”).
Opening night is set for October 20 at a theater to be announced, with previews beginning in late September. The play will have a limited five-month run, according to the Chicago Tribune who first reported the story.
This will be the first revival of “The Front Page” since 1986. The three-act play will be directed by Jack O’Brien, who worked with Lane last season in “It’s Only a Play.”
