Manhattan Theatre Club, Lynne Meadow (Artistic Director) and Barry Grove (Executive Producer) are pleased to announce the American premiere of the London Theatre Company (Nicholas Hytner and Nick Starr) production of My Name is Lucy Barton starring Laura Linney (Lillian Hellman’s The Little Foxes, “Ozark”), by Elizabeth Strout (Olive Kitteridge), adapted by Rona Munro (The James Trilogy), and directed by Richard Eyre (The Crucible, Notes on a Scandal) as part of Manhattan Theatre Club’s upcoming 2019-2020 season. The New York production will be produced in association with Penguin Random House Audio.

Four-time Emmy winner, two-time Golden Globe winner, three-time Academy Award and four-time Tony nominee Laura Linney returns to Broadway in a haunting new solo play adapted by Rona Munro from the bestselling novel by Pulitzer Prize winner Elizabeth Strout. A sold-out sensation originally produced by the London Theatre Company at the Bridge Theatre in London, Ms. Linney was hailed as “luminous” by The New York Times, “genuinely phenomenal” by Time Out, and the play was called “deeply affecting and heartbreaking” by The Observer.

The creative team for My Name is Lucy Barton includes Bob Crowley (scenic & costume design), Peter Mumford (lighting design), John Leonard (sound design) and Luke Halls (projection design).
