Broadway: Tony Shalhoub, John Turturro, Jessica Hecht Coming in Arthur Miller’s “The Price”


We’re going to have a busy Broadway winter season, with lots of stars, that’s for sure.

Emmy winner Tony Shalhoub is starring in Arthur Miller’s “The Price,” directed by Terry Kinney and co-starring John Turturro and Jessica Hecht. Whew! Performances begin Feburary 17th and the play opens March 17th. That’s three Tony nominations right there.

Kinney, a Steppenwolf alum, directed Neil Labute’s hit “Reasons to be Pretty,” plus many other shows. He’s also a well regarded actor, from “thirtysomething” right up through “Billions.”

Shalhoub, Turturro, and Hecht are all A listers. Hecht will be wrapping up her run as Golde in the “Fiddler on the Roof” revival. Turturro is involved in HBO’s hit drama “The Night Of.” Shalhoub is coming from the weird CBS summer dramedy “BrainDead.”

Also announced: Julie Taymor directing a revival of “M. Butterfly.” The original hit play starred John Lithgow and B.D. Wong. They’re casting now for the two principals.
