The producers of Will Eno's new play The Realistic Joneses announced today that the production will begin previews in mid-March, with an official opening night on Sunday, April 6, 2014, at a Shubert theatre to be announced. Rehearsals will begin in February.
The Realistic Joneses will star Golden Globe and Emmy Award-winner; Academy Award and Tony Award-nominee Toni Collette ("Hostages," "United States of Tara," The Sixth Sense, The Wild Party), Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild Award-winner Michael C. Hall ("Dexter,"Chicago), Tony Award-winner Tracy Letts (Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?; August: Osage County; "Homeland"), and Academy Award-winner and Gold Globe-nominee Marisa Tomei (My Cousin Vinny; The Wrestler; Salome).

This new American play comes to Broadway after a critically-acclaimed run at the Yale Repertory Theatre in 2012.
In The Realistic Joneses, we meet Bob and Jennifer and their new neighbors, John and Pony, two suburban couples who have even more in common than their identical homes and their shared last names. As their relationships begin to irrevocably intertwine, the Joneses must decide between their idyllic fantasies and their imperfect realities. This contemporary comedy explores how our joys and sorrows - and how we choose to face them - can come to define our lives.
