The Broadway premiere of Grand Horizons, a new play by Bess Wohl, opened at the Hayes Theater January 23. The limited run, which began previews December 23, is directed by Leigh Silverman and presented by Second Stage Theater.

In Grand Horizons, Nancy and Bill (played by Tony and Emmy winner and four-time Oscar nominee Jane Alexander and Academy Award nominee and Emmy winner James Cromwell, respectively) have spent 50 years as a married couple. As they settle into their new home in Grand Horizons, Nancy suddenly walks out, leaving their sons Brian, played by Michael Urie, and Ben, played by Ben McKenzie, to struggle with the sudden change and crumbling family. Rounding out the cast are Priscilla Lopez as Carla, Maulik Pancholy as Tommy, and Ashley Park as Ben's wife, Jess.
