The Manhattan Theatre Club production opens January 15.

My Name is Lucy Barton, starring Tony and Oscar nominee Laura Linney, opens on Broadway January 15. The Rona Munro play, adapted from Elizabeth Strout's best-selling novel, premieres at the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre following an acclaimed London run.

The production, directed by five-time Olivier Award winner Richard Eyre, is presented on Broadway by Manhattan Theatre Club and London Theatre Company.

In the monologue piece, Linney plays Lucy Barton, a woman who wakes after an operation to find—much to her surprise—her mother at the foot of her bed. During the weeks-long visit, Lucy tries to understand her past, works to come to terms with her family, and begins to find herself as a writer.
