Johnson will play the family matriarch and title role in Dot, which she originated during its premiere engagement at the Actors Theatre of Louisville’s Humana Festival earlier this year. The New York debut is set to begin previews Feb. 4, 2016, with an official opening Feb. 23.
Here's how the Vineyard bills the new work: "Dot is the story of family matriarch Dotty, whose three adult children gather for the holidays with more than exchanging gifts on their minds. As Dotty struggles to navigate life with dementia, her children fight to balance care for their mother and care for themselves."
