American Express card members can currently purchase tickets on pre-sale. Public sales by phone and internet begin Jan. 27.

Michael Blakemore (Copenhagen) directs the work slated to begin previews April 16 at Broadway's Music Box Theatre with an official opening scheduled for May 6. The run will be a "strictly limited engagement" of 18 weeks.

Scott Rudin, Stuart Thompson, Maberry Theatricals, The Shubert Organization, Roger Berlind, Debra Black, Bob Boyett, Susan Dietz and Daryl Roth produce the Broadway run.

Four-time Tony winner Lansbury (Sweeney Todd, Dear World, Gypsy, Mame) returns to Broadway to play opposite fellow Tony winner Seldes (A Delicate Balance) in the new McNally work. The acclaimed actresses will play former doubles tennis legends reunited at a championship match.

Further casting and a design team are yet to be announced.

With the exception of a few one-night performances, Lansbury has not graced the New York stage since her 1983 turn in the revival of Mame. The actress also appeared on Broadway in Anyone Can Whistle, The King and I and A Little Family Business. She earned an Academy Award nomination for her screen debut in "Gaslight" and also played in "The Picture of Dorian Gray" and "The Manchurian Candidate." She is known to television audiences for her lengthy stint in "Murder, She Wrote."

Seldes — a stage stalwart — won her Tony for Edward Albee's A Delicate Balance. Last seen Off-Broadway in McNally's Dedication or the Stuff of Dreams and Beckett/Albee, her Broadway credits include Equus, Ivanov, 45 Seconds From Broadway, Father's Day, Deathtrap, Ring Round the Moon and Dinner at Eight — she was Tony-nominated for the last four.

Deuce will perform at the Music Box Theatre, located in Manhattan at 239 West 45th Street.
