Happy Trails to Nora: A DOLL'S HOUSE PART 2 Plays Final Broadway Performance Today
A Doll's House Part Two concludes its run today, September 24, at the Golden Theatre.
A Doll's House, Part 2 began previews on March 30, 2017 and opened to ecstatic reviews on April 27. It went on to receive eight 2017 Tony Award nominations - more than any other play. Originally announced as a 16-week engagement, A Doll's House, Part 2, but extended its World Premiere run on Broadway through January 7, 2018, before announcing its September closing.
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?
Take a look back on the play's run on Broadway below.
