‘The Realistic Joneses’ to Close July 6

The Realistic Joneses, Will Eno’s absurdist comedy-drama about two suburban couples with the same last name, will be ending its Broadway run at the Lyceum Theater on July 6 after 27 previews and 105 regular performances. It opened on April 6 following a critically acclaimed production at Yale Repertory Theatre.

The all-star cast consists of Emmy winner Toni Collette (The United States of Tara), Golden Globe winner Michael C. Hall (Dexter), Tony and Pulitzer Prize winner Tracy Letts (Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, author of August: Osage County) and Oscar winner Marisa Tomei (My Cousin Vinny). Letts was the only holdover from the Yale cast. Obie winner Sam Gold (Fun Home, Circle Mirror Transformation) repeated his direction of the Yale Rep production. The show received no Tony Award nominations and mixed reviews, but has been doing fairly well at the box office, presumably thanks to big names of the cast.

The production marked Eno’s Broadway debut. He has already made a significant name Off-Broadway with works such as the Pulitzer-Prize finalist Thom Paine (based on nothing), Middletown, Title and Deed and The Open House, for which he just received an Obie Award.
