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,’ theater review
6 / 10

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.

The Realistic Joneses, Lyceum Theatre, New York, review
8 / 10

As one might deduce from an ironically titled play whose 'realism' is open to debate, Eno is interested more in the byways of speech and silence than in actual plot. Not a lot happens during The Realistic Joneses beyond the coming together of two couples, both called Jones, who inhabit a small town where such activity as there is involves a balloon festival and local fair that pointedly don't involve them. Any friends or relations? Forget it: these four are one another's world - perhaps even the world - and that's that.
