After months of circling Broadway for the right venue and dates, the upcoming revival of Lanford Wilson’s combustible drama Burn This has secured a home at the Hudson Theatre, where it was originally planned for early 2017.
Michael Mayer will direct the new staging, which swoops in on a prime vacancy created at the Hudson by the Jan. 6 closing of another Mayer production, the Go-Go’s musical Head Over Heels.
Previews start March 15 at the Hudson, with an official opening set for April 16. General ticket sales begin Dec. 2.
The play marks Driver’s return to Broadway for the first time since 2011, while Russell will make her Broadway debut, following six seasons on the critically adored FX series The Americans.
