Maggie Grace and Sebastian Stan get close — Nicholas Sparks-movie close — in the brand-new poster for the Broadway-bound revival of Picnic, William Inge’s 1953 Pulitzer-winning drama about steamy passions in the mid-20th-century American heartland. Stan, a Gossip Girl alum who appeared in Captain America and last summer’s USA miniseries Political Animals, plays a handsome young drifter who crashes a Labor Day picnic in a small town — and catches the attention of the beautiful but innocent Madge Owens (played by Grace, a Lost alum who most recently reprised her role as Liam Neeson’s daughter in Taken 2). The limited-run play, directed by Sam Gold, begins previews Dec. 14 before a Jan. 13 opening at Roundabout’s American Airlines Theatre.
