Bess Wohl’s play Grand Horizons opened at Second Stage Theater at the Helen Hayes Theater and was Directed by Leigh Silverman.
January 23, 2020: Bill and Nancy have spent 50 full years as husband and wife. As portrayed by Tony Award winner and Academy Award nominee Jane Alexander (The Great White Hope, The Sisters Rosensweig) and Academy Award nominee and Emmy Award winner James Cromwell (Babe, “Succession”), they practically breathe in unison, and can anticipate each other’s every sigh, snore, and sneeze.
But just as they settle comfortably into their new home in Grand Horizons, the unthinkable happens: Nancy suddenly wants out. As their two adult sons struggle to cope with the shocking news, they are forced to question everything they assumed about the people they thought they knew best. By turns funny, shocking, and painfully honest, Bess Wohl’s new play explores a family turned upside down and takes an intimate look at the wild, unpredictable, and enduring nature of love. Also joining the cast are Tony Award winner and Broadway legend Priscilla Lopez (A Chorus Line, In the Heights), Ben McKenzie (“Gotham”, “The O.C.”), Maulik Pancholy (“30 Rock,” “Weeds”), Tony Award nominee Ashley Park (Mean Girls), and Michael Urie (Torch Song, “Ugly Betty”).
