Pam MacKinnon, who won a 2013 Tony Award for her revival of Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, is slated to direct the first Broadway revival of Wasserstein's play, which closed in 1990. Tracee Chimo (Bad Jews) is also among the cast.

The production is slated to begin performances in February 2015, around the time "Mad Men" will conclude on AMC, and open in early March. A theatre has not yet been announced. 

In The Heidi Chronicles, a feminist art historian and her friends — male and female, gay and straight — mature from the 1960s-80s as they search for political, professional and personal fulfillment.

Biggs (The Graduate) will play Scoop Rosenbaum, a writer who has a flirtatious friendship with Heidi, and Pinkham (Ghost) will play Peter Patrone, Heidi's gay best friend. Chimo will play the roles of Fran, Molly, Betsy and April.

The original production also took home a 1989 Tony Award for Best Featured Actor in a Play (Boyd Gaines). Joan Allen, who starred as Heidi Holland, was Tony-nominated for her performance.

The creative team will include scenic design by John Lee Beatty and costume design by Jessica Pabst

The producers are led by Jeffrey Richards (All the Way, starring "Breaking Bad" actor Bryan Cranston; Speed-the-Plow, starring Moss in 2008), Jerry Frankel, Susan Gallin and Mary Lu Roffe.
