Henrik Ibsen wrote A Doll's House in 1879, so it might seem strange to find out that there's a sequel opening on Broadway this spring. You might ask, why now? Lucas Hnath, the writer behind A Doll's House, Part 2, makes a convincing case for the enduring relevance of Nora's story in 2017. Hnath's new play pulls from themes and inspirations in Ibsen's original play, but he brings it all into a distinctly modern perspective - even if the sumptuous costumes are still 1879 chic. You don't need to know the story of A Doll's House to appreciate the story of A Doll's House, Part 2, thanks in part to the impressive talents of the play's ensemble: three-time Emmy Award-winner Laurie Metcalf, Academy Award-winner Chris Cooper, Tony Award-winner Jayne Houdyshell, and two-time Tony Award-nominee Condola Rashad each give a performance for the ages.
The producer's of A Doll's House, Part 2 have released this new trailer, which gives context to the story's place in the history of modern theatre. The new play is now in performances at Broadway's Golden Theatre, and it's a must-see. Get your tickets by visiting the show page below.
