Academy Award winner Jessica Chastain will come to Broadway this spring as Nora Helmer in director Jamie Lloyd's new production of Henrik Ibsen's A Doll's House, in a new version by Amy Herzog.

A Doll's House thrust drama firmly into the modern age when it premiered in 1879. Now, nearly a century-and-a-half later, Tony Award nominee Jamie Lloyd and acclaimed playwright Amy Herzog will make freshly relevant a story that shocked audiences and brought forth a new era of theater. One of the most acclaimed actors of her generation, Jessica Chastain will inhabit one of the theater's most iconic roles, re-energizing the play for a whole new generation.

A Doll's House has previously been on Broadway 13 times, with the last production being in 1997 at the Belasco Theatre.

Jessica Chastain, who made her Broadway debut in the 2012 revival of The Heiress, said, "When I sat down with the brilliant Jamie Lloyd five years ago to discuss a possible collaboration, I was over the moon when we decided on A Doll's House. We were set to start rehearsals in London in April 2020, but little did we know what the world (and a pandemic) had in store for us.

While home in New York, walking around the empty theater district made my heart hurt. New York has been my home for over 20 years and it's immensely important to me to take care of this city and support my artist neighbors.

So, I couldn't be happier to play Nora in A Doll's House on Broadway! I'm very excited to work with Jamie and the incredible Amy Herzog in this city that formed me. I hope in the future to work in the West End but for now I can't wait to be together with all of the wonderful people of New York and my artistic community on Broadway."
