Roundabout Theatre Company (Todd Haimes, CEO/Artistic Director) announces a new Broadway production of Arthur Miller’s All My Sons starring Golden Globe winner and Academy, Tony & Emmy nominee Annette Bening as “Kate Keller” and Tony Award winner Tracy Letts as “Joe Keller,” directed by Tony Award winner Gregory Mosher.

A celebrated film star, Ms. Bening began her career on stage; she received a Tony Award nomination for her Broadway debut in Coastal Disturbances (1987).  Mr. Letts is a Pulitzer Prize- and Tony Award-winning playwright (August:Osage County) as well as an award-winning stage and screen actor.

Arthur Miller’s All My Sons will begin preview performances on April 4, 2019, and open officially on Monday, April 22, 2019. This is a limited engagement through June 23, 2019 on Broadway at the American Airlines Theatre on Broadway (227 West 42nd Street).

Annette Bening and Tracy Letts return to Broadway in the play that launched Arthur Miller as the moral voice of the American Theater. In the aftermath of WWII, the Keller family struggles to stay intact and to fight for their future when a long-hidden secret threatens to emerge—forcing them to reckon with greed, denial, repentance, and post-war disenchantment across generations.

Roundabout has an extensive history with Arthur Miller, most recently presenting an acclaimed revival of The Price (2017), After the Fall (2004) and The Man Who Had All the Luck (2002) on the American Airlines stage.  Other productions include a Tony nominated production of The Price in 1992 and All My Sons (1974 & 1997), The Crucible (1989), and the Tony winning revival of A View from the Bridge (1997).

The remaining cast members and design team will be announced soon.

All My Sons will play Tuesday through Saturday evening at 8:00PM with Wednesday and Saturday matinees at 2:00PM and Sunday matinees at 3:00PM.
