The Heidi Chronicles

Closed May 3, 2015

A "sterling production" and "vibrant revival"

Charles Isherwood, The New York Times

Why See The Heidi Chronicles?

An exciting return

Returning to Broadway for its first revival, Wendy Wasserman's 1988 Pulitzer prize and Tony winning play is about the journey of one young women through 20 years of social, political and personal change. Elizabeth Moss, Jason Biggs and Bryce Pinkham lead the cast of this remarkable coming of age story covering the romances and regrets we all pick up in life.

Known to audiences as Mad Men's Peggy, Elizabeth Moss has proven herself to be a remarkable and adaptable actress, choosing diverse theatre roles that have included Karen in David Mamet's controversial Speed-The-Plow. Along side her is Orange is the New Black's Jason Biggs, who made his Broadway debut in Conversations with My Father in 1991 and Bryce Pinkham who recently garnered a Tony Nomination for his portrayal as Monty Navarro in the mad-cap A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder.

What is the story of The Heidi Chronicles?

Looking back at her life with the safety of hindsight, Heidi is a successful Art historian and feminist, who lived through the burgeoning women's rights movement, but can't help but feel a betrayal as she thinks of past loves (the antagonistic and philandering Scoop) and wonders what could have been. Beginning with the meeting of Peter Patrone at a high school dance in 1965 and following Heidi to the yuppietastic 1980's this is an insightful coming of age tale that will resonate widely.
