Hallie Foote, daughter of playwright Horton Foote, and veteran actress Penny Fuller co-star as sisters in the Broadway production of Dividing the Estate, which began performances Oct. 23 and officially opened Nov. 20 at the Booth Theatre.
The pre-performance Platform Series discussion will take place uptown in the lobby of the Vivian Beaumont Theater from 5-5:45 PM. The discussion is free and open to the public. (Note: Those who have tickets to the Dec. 4 performance of Estate will need to travel downtown to the Booth Theatre to attend the 8 PM performance.)
Under the direction of Michael Wilson, Dividing the Estate made its Broadway debut following an acclaimed Off-Broadway run at Primary Stages, where the production earned a 2008 Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding New Off-Broadway Play and an Obie for Playwriting for Foote.
Described as "a human comedy about a family that must confront its past as it prepares for its future," Dividing the Estate features Elizabeth Ashley, Arthur French, Hallie Foote, Penny Fuller and Gerald McRaney, as well as Devon Abner, Pat Bowie, James DeMarse, Virginia Kull, Maggie Lacey, Nicole Lowrance, Jenny Dare Paulin and Keiana Richard.
A Pulitzer Prize winner for The Young Man from Atlanta, Foote reunites with Lincoln Center and director Michael Wilson, following the staging of The Carpetbagger's Children at the Mitzi E. Newhouse Theater in 2002. His other works include The Trip to Bountiful, The Traveling Lady, The Chase, The Last of the Thortons and Talking Pictures, among others.
