Frankie and Johnny in the Clair de Lune Broadway

$59-$159

Record-breaking 6-time Tony Award winner Audra McDonald. Two-time Academy Award and Tony Award nominee Michael Shannon. Together, they star in four-time Tony Award winner Terrence McNally's beloved classic, Frankie and Johnny in the Clair de Lune, directed by downtown visionary Arin Arbus, in her highly anticipated Broadway directorial debut.

These two monumental actors join forces in a play that is as raw as it is romantic, as visceral as it is vibrant, and as funny as it is breathtaking. When a diner waitress and a short order cook meet for a night of fiery passion, they expect a return to loneliness. But as desire turns into the possibility of love, they realize that true connection means being unafraid to reach for the moon.

"Two of the best performances on Broadway. Audra McDonald and Michael Shannon’s chemistry burns up the stage." - The Daily Beast

"Superb! As hilarious as it is touching." - The Hollywood Reporter
