Performances begin Thursday (October 23) for Horton Foote's critically acclaimed new play, DIVIDING THE ESTATE, directed by Michael Wilson on Broadway at The Booth Theatre (222 West 45 Street).  The production, which is being presented by Lincoln Center Theater by arrangement with Primary Stages, is scheduled to open on Thursday, November 20 at 6:45pm for a limited engagement.

DIVIDING THE ESTATE, a human comedy about a family that must confront its past as it prepares for its future, opened to critical acclaim last fall at Primary Stages.  The production featured a cast of 13 headed by Elizabeth Ashley, Arthur French, Hallie Foote, Penny Fuller and Gerald McRaney, with Devon Abner, Pat Bowie, James DeMarse, Virginia Kull, Maggie Lacey, Nicole Lowrance, Jenny Dare Paulin and Keiana Richard, all of whom are reprising their performances in this production.

DIVIDING THE ESTATE has sets by Jeff Cowie, costumes by David C. Woolard, lighting by Rui Rita and original music and sound by John Gromada, the play's original design team.

Playwright Horton Foote returns to Lincoln Center Theater where his play The Carpetbagger's Children was presented at the Mitzi E. Newhouse Theater.  His many plays include The Day Emily Married, The Roads to Home, The Young Man From Atlanta, The Trip to Bountiful, Lily Dale, The Widow Claire and Laura Dennis.  His honors include the Pulitzer Prize for The Young Man From Atlanta and two Academy Awards for his screenplays for To Kill A Mockingbird and Tender Mercies.

Director Michael Wilson staged Horton Foote's The Carpetbagger's Children at Lincoln Center Theater as well as the playwright's The Day Emily Married at Primary Stages.  His other recent New York stage credits include Old Acquaintance for the Roundabout Theatre, Chris Shinn's What Didn't Happen, Eve Ensler's Necessary Targets and Jane Anderson's Defying Gravity.  He has been the Artistic Director of the Hartford Stage for the past 10 years.
