Broadway ShowsPlaysStrictly Limited RunsCritics Picks

Broadway Transfer

After two sell-out runs in London, Rona Munro's adaptation of Elizabeth Strout's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, My Name is Lucy Barton, is on Broadway! Four-time Tony nominee Laura Linney reprises her critically acclaimed turn as the titular character with Richard Eyre directing the one-woman play which also features design by Bob Crowley.

Elizabeth Strout's debut short-novel took the world by storm in 2016. With its haunting and dramatic context, and told from the first-person narrative, My Name is Lucy Barton lends itself to a perfect one-man show.

What is My Name is Lucy Barton about?

Lucy Barton awakes after an operation to find her estranged mother at the bottom of her hospital bed. With memories of her desperate rural childhood and her subsequent escape to New York flooding back to her, Lucy Barton is on the cusp of her writing career but will the complexities of family life still cling onto her?
