Michael Wilson directs the production that arrived on Broadway Oct. 23 following an acclaimed Off-Broadway run at Primary Stages. Estate is scheduled to play a limited Broadway engagement through Jan. 4, 2009.

The Broadway production reunites the 2007 Off-Broadway cast, including Elizabeth Ashley, Arthur French, Hallie Foote, Penny Fuller and Gerald McRaney with Devon Abner, Pat Bowie, James DeMarse, Virginia Kull, Maggie Lacey, Nicole Lowrance, Jenny Dare Paulin and Keiana Richard.

Described as "a human comedy about a family that must confront its past as it prepares for its future," the Off-Broadway engagement of Dividing the Estate garnered a 2008 Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding New Off-Broadway Play and an Obie for Playwriting for Foote.

Dividing the Estate features sets by Jeff Cowie, costumes by David C. Woolard, lighting by Rui Rita and original music and sound by John Gromada.

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 Thorntons and Talking Pictures, among others.
