Directed by Leonard Foglia, the production will officially open Oct. 13.
Tyson and Jones will be sharing a Broadway stage for the first time since 1966, when they appeared in A Hand Is On The Gate at the Longacre Theatre. They also starred in the long-running Off-Broadway production of Jean Genet’s The Blacks.
Tyson is a Tony Award winner (The Trip to Bountiful), a three-time Emmy Award winner (“The Autobiography of Miss Jane Pittman,” “The Oldest Living Confederate Widow Tells All”) and an Oscar nominee ("Sounder"). Jones is a two-time Tony Award winner (Fences, The Great White Hope), three-time Emmy Award winner (“Heat Wave,” “Gabriel’s Fire,” “Summer’s End”) and the recipient of a Grammy Award and an Honorary Oscar.
The Broadway revival will be produced by OSTAR Productions. The complete creative team will be announced at a later date.
The Golden Theatre is located at 252 West 45th Street between Broadway and Eighth Avenue.
