The Family's Back Together- Meet the Cast of A DOLL'S HOUSE, PART 2!The Family's Back Together- Meet the Cast of A DOLL'S HOUSE, PART 2!
by Stephanie Wild - Apr 27, 2017

A Doll's House, Part 2 opens tonight, April 27, at the John Golden Theatre.  Produced by Scott Rudin and directed by Tony Award®-winner Sam Gold, this wildly inventive new American play picks up after Henrik Ibsen's most cherished work concludes. In the final scene of Ibsen's 1879 ground-breaking masterwork, Nora Helmer makes the shocking decision to leave her husband and children, and begin a life on her own. This climactic event - when Nora slams the door on everything in her life - instantly propelled world drama into the modern age. In A Doll's House, Part 2, many years have passed since Nora's exit. Now, there's a knock on that same door. Nora has returned. But why? And what will it mean for those she left behind? Get to know the cast before tonight's opening bows! (more...)
