Breaking: Annette Bening and Tracy Letts to Star in ALL MY SONS on Broadway

Roundabout Theatre Company announces a new Broadway production of Arthur Miller's All My Sons starring Golden Globe winner and Academy, Tony & Emmy nominee Annette Bening as "Kate Keller" and Tony Award winner Tracy Letts as "Joe Keller," directed by Tony Award winner Gregory Mosher.

A celebrated film star, Ms. Bening began her career on stage; she received a Tony Award nomination for her Broadway debut in Coastal Disturbances (1987). Mr. Letts is a Pulitzer Prize- and Tony Award-winning playwright (August: Osage County) as well as an award-winning stage and screen actor.

Arthur Miller's All My Sons will begin preview performances on April 4, 2019, and open officially on Monday, April 22, 2019. This is a limited engagement through June 23, 2019 on Broadway at the American Airlines Theatre on Broadway (227 West 42nd Street).

Annette Bening and Tracy Letts return to Broadway in the play that launched Arthur Miller as the moral voice of the American Theater. In the aftermath of WWII, the Keller family struggles to stay intact and to fight for their future when a long-hidden secret threatens to emerge-forcing them to reckon with greed, denial, repentance, and post-war disenchantment across generations.

The remaining cast members and design team will be announced soon.
