The Signature revival of Horton Foote’s The Young Man From Atlanta, Tony nominee Kristine Nielsen (Gary) and Emmy nominee Aidan Quinn (Elementary), will open November 24 after beginning performances November 7. The production has been extended through December 15 in the Irene Diamond Stage.
Directed by Michael Wilson, the Pulitzer Prize–winning drama tells the story of Lily and Will, a couple reeling from the death of their only child. Set against the backdrop of a rapidly modernizing 1950s Houston, The Young Man From Atlanta sees the Kidders’ lives turned upside down once again when a figure from their son’s past shows up in town.
