Performances begin: April 29, 2008
Venue: Music Box Theatre, 239 West 45th Street, New York, NY 10036

Casual wanderers of West 45th Street may be wondering why a marquee for the same show currently appears at two different theatres. The reason is that the dysfunctional Oklahoma family explored in August: Osage County is moving next door to the Music Box Theatre on April 29. The story follows the members of the Weston family who must return to rural Oklahoma to care for their afflicted mother after the patriarch of the clan vanishes.
