New York, NY –
Producers Debbie Bisno, Fox Theatricals, Jed Bernstein and Paula Wagner announced today that the Broadway Premiere of Grace, the acclaimed American play written by Award-winning writer Craig Wright (Mistakes Were Made, Recent Tragic Events, “Six Feet Under”) and directed by Dexter Bullard (Tracy Letts’ BUG), will play The Cort Theatre (138 West 48th Street).  The strictly limited engagement begins performances on Thursday, September 13th, with an official opening night set for Thursday, October 4, 2012.

Producers also announced that the creative team of Grace will include Beowulf Boritt (Scenic Design), David Weiner (Lighting Design) and Tif Bullard (Costume Design).

Tickets for the production ($32.00 - $132.00), featuring an all-star cast that includes Paul Rudd and Academy Award® nominee Michael Shannon, with Kate Arrington and seven-time Emmy Award®-winner Ed Asner, go on sale via American Express Exclusive Pre-Sale on Tuesday, July 10, 2012 and will be available to the public beginning Friday, July 20, 2012 via Telecharge.com or by calling (212) 239-6200.  For Group Bookings visit www.telecharge.com/groups or call Telecharge Group Sales at 800-432-7780. The Grace box office will open at The Cort Theatre (138 West 48th Street) on Thursday, August 23, 2012.

The performance schedule for Grace is as follows:  Preview performances: Monday – Saturday at 8:00 PM, with 2:00 PM matinees on Wednesday and Saturday (no matinee on 9/26); Post-opening performances: Tuesday – Thursday at 7 PM, Friday – Saturday at 8 PM, matinees on Wednesday & Saturday at 2 PM and Sunday at 3 PM. 

A thrilling cast combines with one of theater's truly original voices, in this gripping dark comedy that asks: are we in control of our lives or is there something else at work? With scenes that careen from the serene to the suspenseful, Grace follows a wide-eyed young couple (Rudd & Arrington) as they start a new life in sunny, promise-filled Florida, with big plans to open a chain of Gospel themed motels. An agitated neighbor (Shannon) and a caustic exterminator (Asner) complete the eclectic foursome as destinies collide in this intensely entertaining and suspenseful journey to the edge of your seat.

Grace first premiered to critical acclaim at The Woolly Mammoth Theatre in Washington, DC in 2004, and was subsequently seen in a celebrated production at Northlight Theater in Chicago, and at the Pasadena Playhouse in Los Angeles (where it received 3 LA Drama Critics Circle Awards including Best Play).

Paul Rudd made his Broadway debut in Tony Award-winning The Last Night of Ballyhoo in 1997 and has since starred in Twelfth Night (1998), Three Days of Rain (2006)and Off Broadway in The Shape of Things (2001), among many other stage productions.  Kate Arrington, who was critically praised for her recent performance at the Goodman Theatre in Iceman Cometh opposite Nathan Lane and Brian Dennehy, is a Steppenwolf Theatre ensemble member, whose productions there include The Hot L Baltimore, The Well-Appointed Room, The Pain and the Itch and The Violet Hour.  Ed Asner last appeared on Broadway in 1989, opposite Madeline Kahn in Born Yesterday.  This production of Grace marks its New York Premiere (in an updated script) and the Broadway debuts of playwright Craig Wright, director Dexter Bullard, and Michael Shannon, who have a fifteen-plus year history of collaboration in the theater, including the recent production of Mistakes Were Made.
