BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below!
In A Delicate Balance, Agnes (Glenn Close) and Tobias (John Lithgow), a long- married couple, must maintain their equilibrium as over the course of a weekend they welcome home their 36-year-old daughter (Martha Plimpton) after the collapse of her fourth marriage, and give shelter to their best friends (Bob Balaban and Clare Higgins), all the while tolerating Agnes' alcoholic sister Claire (Lindsay Duncan).
A DELICATE BALANCE won Edward Albee his first of three Pulitzer Prizes for Drama when it opened on Broadway in 1966. This production marks Glenn Close's return to the New York stage after a twenty-year absence. Joining Miss Close are two-time Tony Award-winner John Lithgow, who starred last summer in the title role of the Public Theater's production of King Lear at the Delacorte Theatre, and Lindsay Duncan, who last appeared on Broadway in Private Lives, winning a Tony Award for her performance.
