Producers announced Tuesday that the Manhattan Theatre Club’s production of Heisenberg will arrive on Broadway this fall, along with its acclaimed original cast of Mary-Louise Parker (Weeds, Proof) and Denis Arndt (The Practice).
“Simon Stephens is one of the most exceptional playwrights in a new generation of exciting writers who are working in the theatre today,” MTC’s Artistic Director Lynne Meadow said in a press release. “I am thrilled to bring to Broadway Simon’s compelling and insightful Heisenberg, which MTC commissioned and produced in our Stage II at City Center. Many more theatregoers will get to see the amazing Mary-Louise Parker and Denis Arndt in the funny, quirky, and moving production that director Mark Brokaw created last spring for our 150 seat theatre Off-Broadway.”

Previews will start Sept. 20 at the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre with an opening night scheduled for Oct. 13.
