Tony, Grammy, and Emmy winner Audra McDonald and two-time Academy Award nominee Michael Shannon will return to Broadway this spring in a revival of Terrence McNally’s two-hander Frankie and Johnny in the Clair de Lune. Check out the show's stars and creative team, above, as well as the new key art, below.

Performances of Frankie and Johnny will begin May 4 at the Broadhurst Theatre ahead of a May 30 opening.

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

In Frankie and Johnny in the Clair de Lune, a waitress and a short-order cook's first date turns into a one-night stand and something more.

The creative team for Frankie and Johnny in the Clair de Lune will include 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.
