Tony, Grammy, and Emmy winner Audra McDonald and two-time Academy Award nominee Michael Shannon are set to return to Broadway this spring in a revival of Terrence McNally’s two-hander Frankie and Johnny in the Clair de Lune.

Frankie and Johnny in the Clair de Lune tells the story of a waitress (McDonald) and a short-order cook (Shannon) whose first date turns into a one-night stand and something more.

Obie winner Arin Arbus (The Skin of Our Teeth) directs the production, in celebration of four-time Tony Award-winning writer McNally’s upcoming 80th birthday (November 3).

Flip through photos of the press day below:

The two-hander debuted Off-Broadway in 1987 in a production directed by Paul Benedict starring Kathy Bates and Kenneth Welsh; a revival was seen on Broadway in 2002 starring Edie Falco and Stanley Tucci. Joe Mantello directed.

The creative team for Frankie and Johnny in the Clair de Lune includes Riccardo Hernandez (sets), Emily Rebholz (costumes), Natasha Katz (lighting), Nevin Steinberg (sound), J. Jared Janas (hair, wig, and makeup), Laurie Goldfeder (production stage manager), and 101 Productions, Ltd. (general manager). Hunter Arnold, Debbie Bisno, and Tom Kirdahy are producing.
