The cast of A Doll’s House, Part 2 will give their final performance Sept. 24, producer Scott Rudin announced Wednesday. After garnering eight Tony nominations, more than any other
After garnering eight Tony nominations, more than any other play this year, and a warm critical reception, the show had initially announced in June that it would extend its original 16-week run to Jan. 7.
A sequel to Henrik Ibsen’s avant-garde play, in which a 19th-century Norwegian wife leaves her home, slamming the door on her husband and children in the final scene, A Doll’s House, Part 2 reintroduces Nora many years later by walking back in through the same door. EW theater critic Maya Stanton called the Sam Gold-directed play “a worthy companion piece to the original.”
In July, Laurie Metcalf, who won a Tony Award for her portrayal of leading woman Nora, and Chris Cooper, were replaced by Julie White and Stephen McKinley Henderson. Jane Houdyshell has remained with the production throughout as maid Anne Marie.
