Will Eno's new play The Realistic Joneses comes to Broadway starring Golden Globe and Emmy Award-winner; Academy Award and Tony Award-nominee Toni Collette ("Hostages," "United States of Tara," The Sixth Sense, The Wild Party), Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild Award-winner Michael C. Hall ("Dexter," Chicago), Tony Award-winner Tracy Letts (Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?; August: Osage County; "Homeland"), and Academy Award-winner and Gold Globe-nominee Marisa Tomei (My Cousin Vinny; The Wrestler; Salome). The production is directed by Obie Award-winner Sam Gold, who was recently represented by Fun Home at the Public Theater.

This new American play comes to Broadway after a critically acclaimed run at the Yale Repertory Theatre in 2012. The Realistic Joneses is produced by Jeffrey Richards, Jerry Frankel, Jam Theatricals, Stacey Mindich, and Susan Gallin/Mary Lu Roffe.

Further details about this production will be announced at a later date.

In The Realistic Joneses, we meet Bob and Jennifer and their new neighbors John and Pony, two suburban couples who have more in common than their identical homes and their shared last names. As their relationships begin to irrevocably intertwine, the Joneses must decide between their idyllic fantasies and their imperfect realities. This contemporary comedy explores how our joys and sorrows - and how we choose to face them - can come to define our lives.

Featured Reviews For The Realistic Joneses


'The Realistic Joneses' review: Michael C. Hall and Toni Collette lead oddly delightful comedy - Newsday
In The Realistic Joneses, the world is familiar and, then again, very scary. It's also weird and cruel and profound in all sorts of unexpected places -- as sad as life but a whole lot funnier. Provocative playwright Will Eno, whose dry and odd work has tended to cause the theatrical equivalent of fistfights Off-Broadway, has come to Broadway with a macabre and melancholy yet strangely delightful comedy...At its most basic, the play can be reduced to a drama about caregivers and the different ways people deal with illness and mortality. But much like work by Edward Albee and Samuel Beckett, Eno's closest forbearers in existential absurdity, there's a challenge in keeping up with these Joneses. As John says, 'This was fun -- I mean, not fun, but some other word.' Indeed.

‘The Realistic Joneses,’ theater review - NY Daily News
It's funny how trying to connect with neighbors, spouses, God, whomever, can lead you nowhere. Will Eno takes that idea and runs with it in "The Realistic Joneses," an anxious comedy that packs rueful zingers, four first-rate starry performances and - buzzkill time, kids - diminishing returns for the entire second half...Under Sam Gold's tight direction, the cast is natural and convincing. But three-quarters of an hour into the 95-minute show, the script simply circles without deepening, darkening or clarifying...But in "Realistic Joneses," his Broadway debut, the engine remains stuck in second. Keeping up with these Joneses quickly loses its appeal.
