Mary-Louise Parker is Returning to Broadway in ‘The Snow Geese’

Mary-Louise Parker will star in Manhattan Theatre Club’s world premiere of The Snow Geese.

Directed by Tony Award winner Daniel Sullivan, the strictly limited 11-week engagement will begin previews Tuesday, October 1st and open October 24th, on Broadway at MTC’s Samuel J. Friedman Theatre (261 West 47th Street).

Parker returns to the Friedman stage where she previously starred in Craig Lucas’ Reckless for which she received a 2004 Tony Award nomination. It also reunites Parker with Sullivan, who directed her in David Auburn’s Proof, for which both Parker and Sullivan received Tony Awards for their work.

The show marks the second collaboration between MTC, MCC, and playwright Sharr White. This winter, MTC produced the acclaimed Broadway premiere of White’s play The Other Place, which had its world premiere at MCC Theater in 2011.


Synopsis: With World War I raging abroad, newly widowed Elizabeth Gaesling (Mary-Louise Parker) gathers her family for their annual shooting party to mark the opening of hunting season in rural, upstate New York. But Elizabeth is forced to confront a new reality as her carefree eldest son comes to terms with his impending deployment overseas and her younger son discovers that the father they all revered left them deeply in debt.  Together, the family must let go of the life they’ve always known.

Additional casting, creative team, and other listings information will be announced in the coming weeks.
